Collishaw & Company, Canadians in the Royal Naval Air Service 1914 – 1918

Collishaw & Company Canadians in the Royal Naval Air Service 1914 – 1918
By J. Allan Snowie
ISBN 978-0-69200989-5

Author J. Allan Snowie is well known in naval aviation circles as the Canadian Navy’s last LSO, Air Canada pilot, author and his transcontinental flight in a First World War Nieuport replica.
The book is a labor of love compiled over many years and was well and truly worth the wait. Snowie spent many days in research the UK’s PRO in Kew as well as in North America in research. A biographical sketch of each pilot as well as a photo when available.
The book is a welcome addition to the historical recollection in this often forgotten period of naval aviation history.
