    First up 'The Victory Book'. Basically a small volume summary of WW2 with lots of unusual pictures and LOADS of propaganda still evident. Can't find a publish date in it but must have been shortly after the war judging by the contents. In superb condition

    Now a small booklet on 'National Service'. Details all the criteria for joining the armed services and written in 1939. It even still has the original application letter in the middle. DaveJB will surely remember this little book as he must have filled one in shortly before the war when he was in his twenties......

    And finally a great little find in amongst some old magazines. Just goes to show it's worth rooting through crap at car boots as you never know where the next thing will come from.

    Seems to be a promotional magazine for 'The Battle of Britain' film. Contains details about how they made the film and who was in it, along with photographs of lots of 'The few' and even one of Adolf Galland on a hunting trip with some of his old RAF adversaries after the war !

    One thing this magazine has shown me.....something I never knew. I always assumed the film of the massed ranks of He-111s was a bit of trickery with one plane copied over and over. However, turns out they had an entire FLEET of HE-111s on loan from the Spanish airforce who still had them as an operational group in the 60s ! Amazing.

    At the time of filming 'The Battle of Britain', Group Captain Hamish Mahaddie had gathered enough aircraft together to form the world's 35th largest airforce. Here is a list of the ones used for filming here in the U.K., there were another 28 CASA 111's used at their base in Tablada, Spain for the opening sequence when Milch inspects the Geschwader, and for the massed bomber formations. A couple of Spits went over there to fly in these battle scenes.

    The original Ju 87 Stuka at Hendon was actually brought up to airworthiness for use in the film, but was then deemed too valuable to risk flying by the RAF. The 3 'Proctuka's' were binned after one test flight as not suitable, (they were bloody dangerous!) so eventually large r/c models were built at Pinewood and used for all the Stuka scenes.
