My copy of Duncan Crow's book
My copy of Duncan Crow's book, British and Commonwealth Armoured Formations (1919-46) (1971) used to belong to A. B. Lord, and has a bookplate that has a Rolls Royce armoured car picture, with the note "Royal Naval Air Service" and "Russian Armoured Car Division". This is the first Profile Publications Limited edition from 1972. It would be interesting to know the history of the book, but that is probably beyond reach. The Rolls Royce armoured car on the bookplate is very archaic-looking, probably just what it says, dating from something like 1919. Someone later scribbled in the upper right corner of that page with a black Pentel pen, or something like it.
