Australia's Few and the Battle of Britain takes the reader on a journey of discovery that produces outstanding access to the personal papers and records of eight men who flew in the Battle. The book is a perfect result of military and personal biography combined... I am glad to have it on my shelf.

Air Crew Book Review

The book explains the background to the award of the Battle of Britain Clasp in 1945. It also details many of the ways in which The Few, a name for the airmen taken from a speech by Winston Churchill, are commemorated.

'The British Aerospace Hawk: A Photographic Tribute' by Michael Leek includes more than 150 full colour photographs of the planes flying low level, sometimes just 100ft off the ground. As the photos were taken from remote mountainsides, they actually look down onto the Hawk MK1 jets as they speed past. The Hawk has been used for many years to train pilots, and the book has been a labour of love for Michael, who spend nearly a decade compiling the shots.
