About the Author

Lieutenant Mark Barber RN is a pilot based at RNAS Culdrose. His dissertation on the Fleet Air Arm in the Mediterranean in World War II was named as the best in its year at the Royal Navy Academy, Dartmouth. He was named Best Aircrew Officer upon graduation of his class. His unlimited access to Royal Navy and Fleet Air Arm museum records and photographs has resulted in a book that is a worthy addition to the annals of British naval aviation.

Adam Hook studied graphic design, and began his work as an illustrator in 1983. He specializes in detailed historical reconstructions, and has illustrated Osprey titles on the Aztecs, the Greeks, several 19th-century American subjects, and a number of books in the Fortress series. His work features in exhibitions and publications throughout the world.

Superficial treatment of training and service of RNAS pilots during WW1. Scout pilots serving on the Western Front receive, as always, most of the attention. There is very little coverage of training and service of float and sea plane pilots.
