Sydney Camm and the Hurricane

£14.99

Product description

In the 25th anniversary year of the death of Sir Sydney Camm, this book brings together rare material on the creation of the Hawker Hurricane, the fighter that became the salvation of the U.K in 1940. Hurricanes shot down more Luftwaffe aircraft than all the other defences combined in our 'narrow margin', 

The chapters compromise material by Sydney Camm himself and by men who worked at various time in or for Camm's fighter design team at Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. Much of the material has not been previously published. 

Besides recording pre-war aeronautical history in the words of those who helped make it, the book also surveys the entire 41 years' leadership of Camm at Kingston. It provides, for the first time in print, insight into and appreciation of the personal and professional qualities of a man whose lifework resulted in the building of over 27,000 aircraft, and whose career and accomplishments will remain forever unequalled in fighter aircraft design.

Oxfam Shop Magdalen Street

Norwich Oxfam is exceptionally large for an Oxfam Shop and we sell a large array of homeware as well as all the usual goods that you would associate with Oxfam shops. We are situated on Magdalen Street, a bustling thoroughfare near to the Cathedral at the heart of a vibrant community and close to the centre of the East Anglian City of Norwich. It is easy to get to, as many of the bus routes (including Park & Ride) go past the shop. There are at least three large car parks and a local shopping centre within walking distance.
