Book Reviews

A look at some of the latest publications received for review

Aviation History Colouring Book 88

Markings in Transition: RAF in the Far East 1941-43 – RAF Mohawk IVs

Compiled, written and published by: Ian K Baker

ISBN: 1322-0217

Format: Paperback, 24 pages

The latest, and what may sadly be the last, in this superb series of self published booklets essentially covers the development of the camouflage scheme and markings of the Curtiss Mohawk Mk III and IV, Hawk H-75A-3 and H-75A-4, in RAF service.

Complementing the wellresearched and detailed descriptive text, which also covers the myths and errors associated with the actual colours used on these aircraft, are the author’s well executed and wonderfully clear line drawings illustrating the camouflage patterns and national markings changes applied to the type, which were mainly operated by the RAF in the Far East, in India and Burma, by 5 and 155 Squadrons. Several contemporary black and white photos of the type are also included, again to illustrate the evolution of the markings’ changes.
