Publisher: Ventura Publications  Wellington, New Zealand

Pages: 50

ISBN: 0-9583594-1-5

Price: $12.95 from Squadron Mail Order

As its title implies the book is about Colonial Spitfire pilots. So it is not limited to Pacific theatre but all theatres of war where Spitfire served. The book brings us the memories and feats of eight New Zealander and four Australian Spitfire pilots. There are 9 color profiles of Spitfires, nearly 60 bw photosof Spitfires in three continents, a neat three view detailed drawing of Spitfire Vc Trop, and profile drawings of F MKVIII and FR MkXIV. Interesting subject for a well established aircraft like Spitfire.
