  1. The Yoxford Boys was bestowed on the 357 Group by William Joyce "Lord Haw Haw" over the Bremen-Hamburg-Cologne radio. The village of Yoxford is close to the Leiston airfield. I too have the book excellent read picked up at a model show for £25.
  2. Why oh why did Airfix not produce a 1/72 EE Canberra B.2/ T.4 the aftermarket possibilities are endless.

    Airspeed Oxford - general 'hack'

    RAF Flying Training and Support Units since 1912 by Ray Sturtivant Air-Britain. I crossed checked the Oxford serial in the Air Britain T serial book as It was a digit out in Rays book presume transpose error as T1373. The Group Captain at Metheringham regularly used their station flight Tiger Moth so I would say yes. All the Bomber Command squadrons tended to use an Oxford and Tiger Moth on strength. The Comms flights used Proctors.

  6. The March 2018 SAMI article on the Airfix Walrus is in 1/48th scale not 1/72nd. A nice article spoilt by lack of proof reading !!
