Lightning Squadrons of the RAF Richard L. Ward Ad Hoc Publications £16.95 Website: www. adhocpublications. com

Many SAM readers will, I am sure, have on a convenient shelf Dick Ward’s books on RAF Hunter and Phantom squadrons that were published by Ad Hoe’s predecessor some years ago now. This latest volume from his archives covers English.

Electric’s supersonic icon which in spite of its rather British vagaries is fondly remembered by those who flew it, if less fondly by those who serviced it. This book is able to score over its predecessors by being in colour throughout, even the early ‘natural metal’-finished Lightnings looking better for being able to show off their unit markings properly.
The units are treated in squadron rather than chronological order and while the subjects may look familiar a high proportion of the photographs are previously unpublished. While there is a brief history of each squadron, the text is used for extensive captions. Any modeller with a fancy for the ‘Frightening’ will appreciate this addition to the bookshelf. Perhaps the publisher and author would now consider revisiting the Phantom and Hunter books with a similarly generous use of colour?
