JONES (H.A., MC) Over the Balkans & South Russia: Being the History of No. 47 Squadron Royal Air Force. 1st Ed., xv+176pp., 12 plates, 3 maps. Edward Arnold. 1923  #59309
[HLMainPic] Excellent, detailed & scarce squadron history by one of its observers (wounded 1917 & won the MC), who was later to be one of the official historians of the RFC/RAF 1914-18. Falls explains: "The 47th Sqdrn. RAF (then RFC) went to the Salonika front in the autumn of 1916, where it had a distinguished but in the main uneventful career. Mr Jones, who had not become an official historian when he wrote this record of his own squadron, is a very attractive writer, & he teaches us to know the mess & its inmates. The squadron's active career was far from ended by the ending of the War, for it was subsequently attached to the Tsarist army of Gen. Denikin. Here it again did well, but the whole affair was hopeless from the start..." Rolls of casualties & awards. Orig. red cloth, titled in black, a very nice clean copy. See illustration on our website.   £120
