You have to email Timothy O'Brien to request a print. You should then get your print a couple of weeks.

I love the "Raspberry Ripple" paint scheme on the BAC TSR-2. I really like the artwork of Keith Woodcock.

That's still pretty vague, chief.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Published way back in 2009 this is still the only book I know which contains
detailed information on such obscure projects as the British Army PT 428
SAM system.
My reason for posting this was to ask, given the time that has elapsed
since publication, whether anyone is looking at an update or covering in
particular the land and sea based systems, which are often mentioned
in passing in other works. For example, information about launchers is
often vague.

David K Brown was probably the closest thing we will ever get to a British Norman Friedman; unfortunately he's been gone for some time.

You might try Friedman's "The Postwar Naval Revolution", which concentrates extensively on British ships - planned and built - and the weapon systems they hoped to carry, "British Cruisers: Two World Wars and After", and also Brown's "Rebuilding the Royal Navy".
