With a foreword by Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Longmore. 246 pages, 6 plates, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the dj: The story of marine aviation is almost as long as the history of powered flight itself, and from 1911, when the young American Glenn Curtis was experimenting with his flimsy 'hydroplanes,' until the present day it has been no less fascinating. Beginning with the early pioneering days and the First World War, this history covers the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign, where the fledgling Royal Naval Air Service had to endure the worst possible conditions; Raymond Collishaw and his aces, who earned undying fame with their famous 'Black Flight' of Sopwith Triplanes on the Western Front; and the North Sea, hunting ground of John Porte's big 'Felixstowe' type patrol flying-boats. ; Ex-Library.
