What's this all about?

FOREWORD  

It is with pleasure and a residual chuckle that I commend "Punch With Wings". Throughout the years, aviation has attracted unto itself a humour, phraseology and wit all of its own. In this book these characteristics are portrayed with that splendid mixture of fidelity, imagination and  foresight for which PUNCH is renowned and which never fails to amuse. But this book will be useful as it is amusing because, through the generosity of the proprietors of Punch, all royalties from its sale go to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund; a cause which is as worthy as it is appropriate. We are especially indebted to Mr. David Langdon, the Honorary Editor, and the managerial staff of PUNCH who have gone to great pains in the launching of this book on an unsuspecting, though inevitably, smiling public.   

The Marshal of Royal Air Force, SIR DERMOT BOYLE, G.C.B., K.C.V.O., K.B.E., A.F.C.

À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
ARTHUR BARKER LIMITED
Arthur Barker Limited was founded in London by Arthur Barker in 1932, and published a range of general titles, with an emphasis on fiction. During the Second World War, Arthur Barker, as a private in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, was capture by Japanese armed forces after the fall of Singapore ( 1942 ). As a prisoner of war ( P.O.W. ), he was brought to Changi ( Singapore ), then Nong Pladuc ( Thailand ) and eventually ended up at Kaorin ( Thailand ). Publishing was obviously suspended between 1939 and 1946. Despite the well - known hideous and terrible living conditions prevailing in the Japanese P.O.W. camps, Arthur Barker did survive. The firm was purchased by the printing company Morrison and Gibb in 1946, and in 1959, sold to George Weidenfeld, where it became an imprint of Weidenfeld and Nicolson. The imprint ceased in 1991.
