Welcome to Cross & Cockade International

The summer edition of the journal (46/3) is being despatched from the printers tomorrow (11-Sep-2015), so will start to land on UK members' mats by early next week. It's another great journal - with some really excellent and fascinating articles and photos.

This issue includes the subscription renewal form for 2016 - with prices being held the same as 2015. Membership is a real bargain, where else can you get so much brilliantly presented information on our favourite subject for so little?

Please note that Roger is continuing to produce the CCI Calendar but, after many years sterling service, is no longer Membership Sec. Andy has relinquished the chair of the committee to allow the time and energy necessary to take over as Membership Sec, as well as controlling the web site. For any membership queries, please use membership.secretary@crossandcockade.com or call Andy on +44 (0)1832 720522.

Don't forget that Roger's excellent 2016 Calendar is now available, which makes a great Christmas gift. Amazingly (to me, anyway) a few members have still not renewed for 2015. It's not too late - you can still renew here and get the first three issues of 2015 immediately, with the fourth issue being published before Christmas. Don't forget as well, that there's a full set of back issues available via PDF, or in print for those we still have stock. If you're not sure which issue you need, check out the index.

The latest quarterly copy of our popular eNewsletter Wind in the Wires, issue 14, went out on 3rd September. Subscribe here free to receive future issues, and/or email me if you'd like to be sent the back numbers. Nearly 1,000 people have so far subscribed. It's free - so why not see what you;re missing? PLEASE NOTE that if you've subscribed but haven't received your issue, you'd do well to check your spam filter(s)!

We have an active Facebook page, cared for by Adrian Roberts; plus an increasingly popular twitter account @crosscockade which is also climbing in popularity!

You can find out more about the book on Trevor's site: www.theskytheirbattlefield2.com or just buy it on this site in either softback or hardback editions.
