Wingent, Peter - Extracts from the Air Ministry Civil Aviation Intelligence Reports Summaries
27 August 1939 to 30 May 1945

Publisher: West Africa Study Circle, 2010.
Large format (A4) paperback, comb-bound, vi + 215 pages, crease to front cover, slight corner-crease to rear cover and last few pages, in Good condition.
The Civil Aviation Summaries, published weekly by the Air Ministry, report the opening and closing of air services, route changes, aircraft employed by various companies, quantities of loads carried and details of accidents to aircraft. During the World War II period some 2000 pages of weekly summaries were published; to reprint these in their entirety was not practical and therefore many areas are omitted - most notably the internal services of Australia, Canada, USA and South America. Although most inter-continental air services have been included, those between USA and South America have not. A useful addition to the literature of Second World War air mail services.

Publisher: BFA Publishing, 2007.
Large hardback, dustwrapper, illustrated, xviii + 457 pages, in Very Good condition.
The fourth volume in this magnificent series covers the story of the mails to and from Canadian, British and Indian servicemen captured in Hong Kong, the US Marines and others imprisoned in China, and civilians of many nationalities interned in Hong Kong and China. The principal concentration of Hong Kong mail was to and from the two major POW camps, Shamshuipo, and Argyle Street, and the civilian camp at Stanley. Many examples are shown with various censors and directional markings to and from these and other camps, as well as a considerable variety of inter-camp mail. In China a relatively small number of POWs were held initially in Woosung and then Kiangwan near Shanghai. Mail from and to these camps is illustrated. The civilians were held in a number of Civilian Assembly Centres in Shanghai, Yangchow and North China and mail from and to these camps is illustrated. Profusely illustrated with more than 400 illustrations, mostly in colour.
