The 2015 third edition book records the service details of the airmen who took part in the Battle of Britain in considerable detail. Where known, postings and their dates are included, as well as promotions, decorations and successes claimed flying against the enemy. There is also much personal detail, often including dates and places of birth, civilian occupations, dates of death and place of burial or, for those with no known grave, place of commemoration. There are many wartime head-and-shoulders photographs. Inevitably the high achievers who survived tend to have the longest entries, but those who were killed very quickly, sometimes even on their first sortie, are given equal status.
The supplement is a vital addition to the original 2015 edition of Men of the Battle of Britain published by Frontline
Many of the individual entries have been expanded to give some idea of the wider social context around the aircrew who earned the Battle of Britain Clasp; this has been achieved by reference to known sources, including information supplied by The Few themselves and their relatives, as well as that found by new research
Complementing the biographical entries, extracts from the service histories of squadrons and units officially recorded as taking part in the Battle of Britain have also been included, detailing bases and aircraft flown
