Having got a good contact in Mozambique working on the recent flood disaster (and it is very bad), I have decided to sell some of my SAAF & aviation book collection to support the relief efforts there, especially as I know the money will be going directly to where it is needed.

I am selling these books locally in Simon's Town area, so it will be cash & collect basis. Amongst the books in the photos below, you will see a rare copy of Chasing the Wind...signed by Kenneth van der Spuy (we visited him in the early days of the Friends of the SAAF Museum) and an extremely rare copy of the South African WAAF.

I have not set any prices and I am genuinely prepared to let these go. Just bare in mind I am looking to raise funds for the Moz Flood Relief as stated above, so please no silly offers. This is probably a golden opportunity for someone to get that missing book for their collection or for enthusiast to kick start their own book collection. Please contact me via PM if genuinely interested. Click on pic to enlarge. Doug

Thanks Dean....something that was really laid on my heart and I felt I needed to do... and it looks like the first book on the WAAF is sold.

Also have a really nice book to add to the list which may trigger interest:

The Story of No.1 Squadron SAAF by Capt Vivian Voss, MBE First Edition 1952. Edit April 1, 2019 SOLD
