Royal Navy Search And Rescue Book Offer

We are delighted to bring you a continuing special offer on a new SAR book that has been published:

  “A history of Royal Navy Search and Rescue from the First World War to the present day.  Royal Navy Search and Rescue A Centenary Celebration”

Today, the sight of a helicopter speeding toward some destination is familiar enough, but take a moment to consider – is there a life at stake?
Is someone in peril and on a knife edge of survival?
Will the helicopter crew be selflessly placing themselves in the most dangerous
of situations for the sake of saving others?

Ever since the First World War, aircraft of the Royal Naval Air Service and later the Fleet Air Arm have operated from land bases and ships at sea, flying search and rescue missions. In this book David Morris, Curator of Aircraft at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, tells the incredible story of Royal Navy search and rescue from the first mission by Sir Richard Bell-Davies VC to the present day.
