The aim of the review section is to cover books and major articles relating to the subject. It will include NEW books and books that are still in print, as well as those that may no longer be available except as Second Hand or via libraries.
The basic entry is simply an identifier of the book title, author, publisher and publication date, along with ‘blurb’ taken from the dust jacket or publicity material.
The review entry, where there is one, is provided by one of our researchers or sent in by someone who feels they would like to submit a review. All reviews will be moderated by the RAF Heraldry Trust historian. However, the views and opinions expressed in reviews are those of the reviewer and the RAF Heraldry Trust!
Where appropriate the entry will be linked back to the Badge in the Badge Register. Likewise, links will be provided from the Badge Register to reviews.
