Some of you are lucky to be reading this! The subscription reminder in the last Newsletter jogged a lot of memories but there are still a few of you out there who have not renewed. See enclosed note.

We are priveleged to have a unique article in this issue, kindly written by John Farley. This is the first time the history of the VAAC Harrier and its work has been published.

Chris Farara
We also have Duncan Simpson's story of the first Harrier delivery and John Crampton's fascinating reminiscences of Sir Thomas Sopwith. Otherwise, it's "all my own work"! How about a few more pieces about your time with Hawkers for the next Newsletter?
