Our fourth and last journal of 2016 (47/4) will be leaving the printers before the end of this week (30-Nov) and will be on your reading pile well before Christmas - unless of course you're outside Europe and have subscribed surface mail. 2017 Membership is now available and, if you're over 80 years of age, you can now join (and claim your £5 discount) in the web shop. That said, a good number of us have not yet renewed for 2016! Difficult to believe, I know, as the year is almost over. However, it's not too late - so if you're wondering where your journals are, renew here.
Christmas is coming - and our 2017 Calendar is now available: you can check it out here.

The new, completely re-written, version of The Sky Their Battlefield (Mark II) has had all the original content thoroughly updated and expanded, revealing the stories of almost 17,000 WW1 air personnel. You can find out more about this indescribably useful book on Trevor Henshaw's site: www.theskytheirbattlefield2.com - or just buy (or, if your birthday's coming up soon, point your relatives towards) it on this site in softback or hardback editions.
We have an active Facebook page, cared for by Adrian Roberts; plus an increasingly popular twitter account @crosscockade which is also climbing in popularity!
