    Summary:
    As the title suggests, this book contains 100 objects related to the RAF. These range from the expected aircraft to other items such as vehicles (crew buses, staff cars, tractors), medals, memorials, buildings, weapons and a host of other items that have a story behind them. For example, The commonwealth Graves Commision headstone of Flt/Lt David Lord VC, the bronze bust of Noor Inayat Khan and the fetching orange PoW jacket worn by Flt/Lt John Nichol, who ejected his Tornado overIraq during the first Gulf War.

    Each item has its country of origin, date and location shown. All in all a fascinating book. The original retail price is £20 but I picked up a copy in "The Works" sale for £5 (or 5p an item :-))
