Wing Commander Robert Stanford Tuck Flying Logbook

From a limited edition of 2, 500 copies which were published in 1996 and is an exact facsimile of the original. This lavishly produced replica covers Stanford Tuck's RAF career from his basic training in 1935 in an Avro Tutor to his final sortie in a Canberra in 1954. The section covering the Battle of Britain in superb and 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." When 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. As close as it comes to owning the real thing!
