I have been interested in British Military Small Craft for over 20 years and when I could not find any detailed books on RAF Marine Craft - someone said - "Why not have a go yourself."
So I did. The result to date is the RAF Marine Craft Directories the first of which was compiled in 2000 with one a year roughly since.
