Title: Georgii Sheremetevsky - Russian Army Air Corps
Post by: Phil_tomaselli on March 20, 2005, 01:24:21 PM
For anyone interested in the early days of aviation in Russia (Sheremetevsky learned to fly 1912 & flew for the Imperial Air Corps in WW1 & for the Whites in the Civil War) "Cross & Cockade International Journal", the magazine of the First World War Aviation Historical Society have just published in their latest magazine (Vol 36 No 1 2005) the first part of a translation of S's memoirs.  Very interesting read if you're into aviation in the period.

Do you know where we can get a copy?  GD Aleksandr Mikhailovich was involved in the founding of the Imperial Air Force.  Does Sheremetievskii discuss his involvement at all?

Thanks

Where did he fly for the Whites in the summer of 1918?
