I found that one too, which came up with a sort of error message before locating the other which can not be found
I guess we keep on searching ...
All the best

If I remember correctly a fellow forum member has been working on the definitive RAF badge book for a while now? Perhaps making this one superfluous?
I Guess we'll have to wait for that one.

Rgds, Thomas.

I wonder how much the sudden & unexpected synchronised "disappearance" of copies advertised for sale may be down to this thread?
Nah, couldn't be............its got to be pure unfortunate coincidence.

Default A question

If someone who has a copy of said document and was willing to produce a couple of copies for forum members (on a not for profit basis - merely to cover costs of paper, ink and postage) what is the issue of copyright?

The cover plate states that Copyright is/was held by Margaret Nobbs and Charles Thomas from 1969 onwards.

I have checked my copy and it's missing the same bits. Section E was supposed to cover RNAS and Fleet Air Arm. Section I is all there except for the ones noted above so it looks like they may not have been done. I suspect that the Notes were never fully completed.

Would be interested to know if there is an RAF badge book in the offing.

Now that would be a welcome publication!

Some great stuff on the web, but books have a particular magic to 'old fashioned' me

I could be mistaken but something sticks in my head that a certain person who is currently 'out of circulation' was planning something along these lines. The only other publication that comes to mid is/are the Malcolm Hobart books.

A person who is currently out of circulation, if it is who I think it is, then I certainly would not even consider buying a copy of anything even remotely connected to him.

Despite some poor reviews of it, I recently bought a copy of the Hobart book basically because there appeared to be nothing else available on RAF badges.

From the interest in this thread it seems there would be a market for a comprehensive new book on RAF badges.

P.B.
