Also on display at the exhibition was a copy of a booklet, beautifully bound in blue leather with a drawing of a biplane engraved in gold on the cover. It was published by Heinemann in 1920.
The title page reads:

C.B., M.C., A.F.C.
with a foreword by
The Rt. Hon. Lord Hugh Cecil, M.P.

Appendix I is a "List of officers who have served in 60 Squadron, together with the decorations gained by them, not necessarily in the Squadron; all Officers are shown in the highest rank to which they attained during the war." There follows a list ranks, names, casualty, date.

Appendix II, titled "Battle Casualties" starts with a brief history of the numbers involved, including casualties. It states that at the end of the war, although 50% of those serving in the Royal Air Force survived, in the case of 60 Squadron, only 25% survived. There follows another list of ranks, names, casualty, date and remarks.
