Michael Hamence and Winston Brent have combined their efforts and brought out a tribute to the CANBERRA in Southern Afncan Service, and number 3 in the series by Freeworid Publications CC. Michael Hamence who served many years on the Canberra has recorded the Rhodesian Air Force experience of the Canberra, whilst Winston Brent records its SAAF service, lifts the lid on the South African "Nuclear Era" and speculates which aircraft type would carry their "A" Bomb, the Canberra the Buccaneer or the Mirage F1AZ. He also records the SMF Canberra in the Electronic Warfare role and publishes for the first time an aerial photograph (taken by a Canberra) of the Soviet "spy-ship" KAPUSHKA when it passed around the southern tip of Africa in 1989. The book is in A4 size with 96 pages and 62 B&W and 22 full colour photographs and printed on quality gloss paper.
