"Just back from a couple of weeks' trip to New York, so here is a brief update on A History of the Mediterranean Air War, 1940-1945, volume three: Tunisia and the End in Africa, November 1942 - May 1943.
"We have completed the first draft and are into several weeks of 'polishing' to deal with all the queries, anomalies, gaps, etc in order to try and have a completed manuscript ready for Grub Street by the end of this year/start of 2016. It is hoped that we can then achieve a June/July 2016 publication to tie in with the major Duxford Air Show. We are then ready to press straight on with volume 4."
