For some time it has been my concern that this website will not exist forever.  Its stated purpose is to be a memorial to my Uncle Stephen and his fellow crew members.  When I am no longer able to maintain it, the domain will expire and so will its hosting service.  Accordingly I have taken much of this content, together with even more information, and have published it as a book.  

The primary reason for writing the book has thus been to ensure a lasting record.  To achieve permanence, I have deposited copies according to a law called Legal Deposit which required that copies be provided to The British Library, The National Library of Scotland, The National Library of Wales, The Bodliean Library Oxford, The Universary Library Cambridge, and the Library of Trinity College in Dublin.  Compliance ensures that the book becomes part of the nation's permanent heritage.  In addition, copies were provided to the RAF Museum in Hendon, the Yorkshire Air Museum, Stephen's former school of Pocklington and the public library in Ilkley.


Although the primary purpose of the book is that of a permanent record, should you so wish it is available in two versions:

1.    As an ebook on Amazon Kindle. Simply go to your country's Amazon web site, select Kindle Store and search for me (as author) Stephen Pemberton.  Alternatively search for the Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) which is B06XKCL2NG

2.    As a Hardback book.  This is published by Tredition and is available from their online bookshop at  It is also available from most Amazon web sites and again search for me (as author) Stephen Pemberton.  Alternatively search for the ISBN-10 of 3732390616 or
ISBN-13: 978-3732390618.  Note that the hardback version is subject to print-on-demand and will thus take some time to arrive.
