184 CUMMING, Michael Radar Reflections : The Secret Life of Air Force Radar Mechanics in World War Two. First Edition in dustjacket
Radar Assciates, Calgary, 2000, ISBN:1894255100 
CUMMING, Michael. Radar Reflections : The Secret Life of Air Force Radar Mechanics in World War Two. (Calgary) : Radar Associates, (2000). First Edition. Pp (10),1-246, + 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "In this first-time focus on the role and the experiences of radartechnicians in the Allied air forces in WWII, who trained and worked under the strictest secrecy, Michael Cumming, career journalist and established aviation author, draws on personal stories and contemporary records to showhow the many different applications of radar were put to effective use bot h for defensive and offensive purposes in winning the air war. By concentrating on ground-based and airborne radar and telling its story through the experiences of those who installed, maintained and operated this innovative equipment in all the theatres of war, Radar Reflections makes an invaluablecontribution to recorded radar history. During the summer and autumn of 19 40, when Britain faced the onslaught of Germany's bomber fleets, there was an acute shortage of radar technicians - there were barely enough for the present, let alone to be able to maximize radar's remarkable potential in the future. In the armed forces, this was a trade so new, so specialized in its requirements and so cloaked in secrecy that recruitment and training would call for extreme measures. Answwmg this call, the handful of newly-enlisted members of the Royal Canadian Air Force who formed the vanguard of Canada's promised 5,000 were in Britain as early as Christmas Day 1940. As the demand increased, more and more members of Commonwealth and US air forces were working alongside RAF personnel in Britain, the Mediterranean, the Far East and the Pacific; while others, with British support where it was needed, pioneered radar systems for their own nationaJ derense. Radar Reflections is a highly readable narrative - a definitive account of the role and theexperiences of radar technical otticers and radar technicians that testifi es to the vital contribution these specialists made to the Allies' victory.It is a comprehensive chronicle of their activities - a structured blend o f personal reminiscences and documented material, carefully researched among contemporary records. Battles, lives and natlonal survival depended on radar technicians being able to keep a fast-growing product range of highly complex equipment functioning whatever the circumstances, whatever the hardships. The radar technicians' story reaches a heartening conclusion; it demonstrates that the wartime :omradeship lives on, with a rekindled interest in reunions and increasing emphasis on keeping the subject of radar alive for future generations."

Paladwr Press, McLean, VA, 1999, ISBN:1888962143 
DAVIES, R.E.G., and Philip J. BIRTLES. Comet : The World's First Jet Airliner. Illustrated by Mike Machat. (McLean, VA) : Paladwr Press, (1999). FirstEdition. Pp (4),5-63,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. Triple Column. Oblong 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The year 1999--27th of July to be exact--marks the 50th anniversary of the dramatic first flight of the de Havilland D.H. 106 Comet airliner. The full drama of the event was not completely realized at the time, even though it was recognized as one that was certainly significant. Aviation folk everywhere, not least in the United States, then believed that jet propulsion could not be reconciled with commercial airline operations. The jets, they said, are too fuel-thirsty & whilstacceptable for military applications, where cost is not critical, air tran sport operations will be economically impossible. The faith of the de Havilland company, the inspired intuition & combined design & engineering skillsof the Comet team & the dedication of both de Havilland & the launch custo mer, the state airline, B.O.A.C., proved all the specialists & experts wrong. In May 1952, the Comet took the message into the world, as B.O.A.C. built up its jet network. The Jet Age had begun. Sadly, after two years, a design fault was discovered, one which no previous experience in building commercial airliners (or any other aircraft) had revealed. Both the manufacturer& the operator paid a heavy penalty for being first, as it was literally a case of "back to the drawing board." Four more years were to pass before t he rejuvenated Comet had the honour of starting the world's first trans-Atlantic jet airline service. And, as described herein, it acquitted itself well thereafter. Since then, the world has never looked back. In February 1999, the British Post Office included the Comet as one of Britian's great innovations during the millenium. This book also pays tribute to that beautiful aeroplane. The Comet changed the course of air transport progress & in spite of the problems it encountered, will still, on the wings of the derivative Nimrod (the same wings, in fact, as those on the first Comet), fly intothe next millenium, more than half a century after it first took to the ai r."

Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with black letterng to spine and black lettering and illustration to front board. Printed in Canada by T. H. Best Printing Co., Limited. Spadoni & Donnelly 1249. "Only with diffidence and reverence can the task be approached of drawing attention to the letter from a young airman which follows, and the feeling that any comment on it must be impertinent inspires a strong wish to do no more than draw attention to it—to write the equivalent of a pointing arrow or a prominent headline in the hope of making sure, so far as is possible, that no reader shallpass over or read lightly a document that may well become historical, a cl assic. Yet the circumstances in wftich the letter was written, as well as the quality of what it has to say, justify an attempt, however clumsy, to bring them out. The letter was written by a young airman to his mother, to whom it was only to be delivered on his death. It is a voice, as we crudely say from the grave;and its utter sincerity—plain to all in its clean, simpleEnglish—is that of a man speaking in secrecv to his mother after he has go ne to face his Maker." (from the Introduction). Dampspotting to cloth, elsevery good in torn and chipped dustjacket. As is. 12.00

DICKSON, Frances Jewel. The DEW Line Years : Voices from the Coldest Cold War . Lawrencetown Beach, NS: Pottersfield Press, (2007). Pp. [1]-208. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "The Canadian Far North seems anunlikely theatre of war. Yet in the 1950s, at the height of the Cold War w ith the Soviet Union, thousands of young men from various countries were recruited to build and operate a complex radar system across the Arctic Circle from Alaska to Greenland. The Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line, as the mammoth radar fence was known, was spawned from American fear that Soviet bomber aircraft might penetrate the Canadian Arctic airspace and drop nuclear weapons on American cities and military bases. This book tells the stories of those DEW Liners who worked in the hostile, remote climate of the North.Survival was a daily preoccupation in a land where outdoor temperatures ca n dip to -50 degrees with winds exceeding 100 miles an hour as blinding snowfall whiteouts make vision impossible." - from the rear cover. Very good. 12.00
