Oldnautibits' New Year SPECIAL PROMOTION!
January 2014

We have decided to extend our 2013 Special Sale Promotion into the New Year! Our Robert Stanford Tuck Replica Log Book is an out-of-print limited edition. Two and a half thousand copies were published in 1996 as exact facsimiles of the original. Click the photo to the right for a bigger picture.

This lavishly produced replica covers Stanford Tuck's RAF career, from his basic training in 1935 in an Avro Tutor, to his final 1954 sortie in a Canberra. The section covering the Battle of Britain is superb, it's recorded in the matter of fact manner of the day. Tuck's final wartime Op on 28th January, 1942 reads "Rhubarb Patrol. Prisoner of War."

By the time he went "in the bag", he had achieved 29 victories and, had he continued on operations, could well have become Britain's top scoring ace. This is as close as you can get to owning the real thing! It comes complete with a numbered limited edition certificate. The log books are brand new and in mint condition and this deal makes the perfect any occasion present for yourself, or the aviation enthusiast in your life.

In addition, while stocks last, we are offering a brand new royal blue "Made in England" Aviation Tie with every purchase; the tie features a yellow biplane, possibly a Tiger Moth (as shown in the picture).

The news gets better still! For all orders placed during the promotion, UK customers with receive FREE DELIVERY - so our list price of 35, becomes the delivered price. For overseas customers, we will take the first 5.00 off your postal charges.
