New Zealanders with the Royal Air Force (Vol. I)
For their generous assistance in the matter of records my thanks are due to many officers of the Air Ministry, London, particularly to Mr. J. C. Nerney and his staff of the Historical Branch, without whose help the work could not have been accomplished. They are also due to Flight Lieutenants B. G. Clare and N. W. Faircloth who wrote narratives on Bomber and Fighter Commands, and to Sergeant S. W. R. Holmes for additional research and the preparation of biographical notes. I also wish to record my gratitude to the many men who have written in response to our requests for information and also to those who have read and commented upon the text, especially to Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park. The illustrations have been arranged from photographs in the RNZAF official collection and others supplied by Air Ministry and the Imperial War Museum, London.
The occupations given in the biographical footnotes are those on enlistment.page xviii
