A4 booklet, 56 pages (page numbers and text on one side only). Printed privately. (A13GWSO)
From the foreword: There are two ways of tackling a unit history. The one adopted by some army regiments which accounts for every moment of the unit's life and results in many volumes of expensive detail-and the broad brush technique which aims at producing a brief account which enables the reader to get the "feel" of the unit concerned without too much effort. This is an attempt at the latter.
However, brief though the final product is, it has had a long gestation and the Squadron is indebted to Flight Lieutenant L.O.T. WALFORD (Nov. '61-May '64) for having finally induced its birth. Thanks are also due to all those anonymous members of the Squadron who, over the years, have contributed items for inclusion in this book; particularly to G. RAOUL Esq. who, as Flying Officer in 194-4 and 1945, wrote at length about the activities - of No. 38 Squadron.
This book is a privately printed history of No. 38 Squadron of the Royal Air Force, a bomber (and later maritime reconnaissance) squadron formed during the First World War. The booklet pages have three holes punched along the left hand side, and is currently stored and bound in a blue card folder.
The condition of the booklet is generally ok. The blue card folder has some minor scuffs and creases, but the inside pages are all clean, intact and unblemished.
