Welcome to Cross & Cockade International!

Following the delay publishing 48/3, we're delighted to announce that, thanks to the efforts of the editorial and pre-press teams and support from our excellent printers, issue 48/4 was posted to members 08-Dec-2017. Needless to say, it's a corker - check out the details below.

The reason for the publication delay was illness in the Pre-Press team - we're very sad to announce that one of our trustees and supporter of the society for many years, Barbara Huston, passed away 09-Jan-2018.

Our latest publication, "Wings Over Mesopotamia, Air War in Iraq 1914 - 18" was launched at our AGM in April - and is selling well. Get your copy and read the fascinating story of the air was over Iraq (as it's now known) here, in the web shopMore details of what's in the book here.

Here's another reason for you to visit our shop during the festive season! Another batch of pre-loved WW1 aviation books are available - thanks to the efforts of a willing volunteer or two. There's 30+ available now, at very reasonable prices - with more to come. Watch this space!
