I wondered if you could publicise the wonderful work that 3 colleagues of mine from my Cranwell days have accomplished.
What was planned over a few beers at a poolside bar in the south of France has been fantastically successful. It was decided to produce a book called “Out Of The Blue” a collection of short stories written by those involved. Issue one was so successful that “Out of the Blue Too” was produced and now “Out of the Blue Three” is being produced for final printing towards the end of 2017. The guys involved have given so much time and effort to this project, which nearly did not get off the ground. Thanks to enormous dedication and persistence the team finally got a company to publish the books and so far they have made over £50,000 for Military charities. The proceeds from book 1 were split between the RAF Benevolent fund and Help the Heroes. Book 2 was split between the RAF, Army and RN/RM benevolent funds.
If you have a story that others will find interesting, or may find amusing, or interesting and amusing, please don’t hesitate to sharpen the pencil or quill and pen a few words. The story doesn’t need to be lengthy, but it does need to be about the RAF. Also it doesn’t need to be about flying so engineers and other trades can put their thinking caps on.
If you think you have a story that would merit being published then please contact Martin Jones at: email@example.com Martin will decide if your contribution is worthy of being included in the book and will keep you informed.
Please help if you can as all proceeds are being forwarded to such good causes and, who knows, anyone of us may need their help in the future.
Here are the references for books 1 & 2 on Amazon if you want to support the effort. They will make great Christmas presents to anyone with a passion for Military Aviation.
Chris I am sure you must have a tale or two that can be published. Like me you probably have a few that can’t!
(I’ve got both these books are they are well worth buying and reading!)
