Welcome to Cross & Cockade International!

Our latest publication, "Wings Over Mesopotamia, Air War in Iraq 1914 - 18" was launched at our AGM at RAF Museum, Hendon, on Saturday 22nd April - and is now available to buy in the web shop. More details here.

The good news is that journal 48/2 left the printers yesterday (22nd June) - more details are below. Sadly, if you've not yet renewed your membership of the society will have lapsed, so you won't receive either 48/1 or 48/2. So - it's time to resubscribe! Your free access to our new Member's Area will also have lapsed. This is a research information resource that we'll be building during the year - so watch this space! please click here to resubscribe: 2017 Membership.

We've also launched our 2018 Calendar! There's plenty of time yet before January, but if you're thinking ahead, or need a gift for an aviation enthusiast, what could be better? You can buy one now, here. We've still a handful of 2017 Calendars available: grab one here before they're all gone! If you just like the images (who doesn't?) we've still a handful (literally - four!) of the 2016 Calendars available here.

Issue 21 of our popular free email newsletter Wind in the Wires went out in June. Subscribe here to receive future issues, and/or email me if you'd like to be sent the back numbers. We've over 1,200 subscribers - and it's free - so why not see what you're missing? PLEASE NOTE that if you think you've subscribed, but haven't received your issue, you'd do well to check your spam filter(s)!

The new, completely re-written, version of The Sky Their Battlefield (Mark II) has had all the original content thoroughly updated and expanded, revealing the stories of almost 17,000 WW1 air personnel. You can find out more about this indescribably useful book on Trevor Henshaw's site: www.theskytheirbattlefield2.com - or just buy (or, if your birthday's coming up soon, point your relatives towards) it on this site in softback or hardback editions.

We have an active Facebook page, cared for by Adrian Roberts; plus an increasingly popular twitter account @crosscockade which is also climbing in popularity!
