  1. 30 Squadron RAF book

    Hi I own a copy of "Flat Out" by John F Hamlin published 2002, I should imagine a definitive history of 30 Squadron from its formation onwards. Lots of names, photos, almost day-to-day record of its activities. If anyone wants a look-up on a relative etc. I can but try.
