“This unique book is a labour of love for Phillip Camp who has spent more than two decades covering the Indian Air Force and its activities as an Aviation writer. Phillip had collected thousands of patches over the years and it is his passion for them that has resulted in this book. It is my personal opinion that the book excels when the lesser known units come into focus, especially the “no-number” Institutions and units. Another benefit of this effort is that the discerning reader has one single reference book that lays out the potted history of most of the IAF’s flying units. The book is one of a kind – It is only the author’s personal interest, vast collection and personal drive that had this book reached publication status. Suffice it to say that there is no one else in the world who had spent so much time studying the patches of the IAF.”
