Description
Be prepared for anything with a facsimile collection of four Air Ministry Survival Pamphlets, first published 1950-53. Whether you’re lost in the desert, arctic, or jungle, or adrift on the open ocean: arm yourself with practical tips on how to keep calm and carry on in any hostile environment. Originally issued to British airmen, the guides include sound advice; from building an igloo, rationing supplies, and improvising equipment, to distress signals, catching fish, and punching sharks. A fascinating insight into military service in the 1950s. The Air Ministry operated from 1918 until 1964, when it became part of the Ministry of Defence. Illustrated throughout with black and white diagrams.
