  • Civil Aviation Authority records
    West Africa Study Circle member John Wilson has made a superb job of transcribing Civil Aviation Authority records of World War Two. This has led to the document attached here which details Empire and Trans-Oceanic airline services during each of the war years. This will be of invaluable help to philatelic researchers, and not simply those of British West Africa. John wishes it to be made available to all readers whether members or not of the Study Circle. It is not to be used for commercial publication without his permission.
