A rare Air Ministry Weekly Intelligence Summary, issue number 307, dated 21st July 1945. Includes top secret war reports, photographs and diagrams. These weekly summaries were produced throughout the war.

This issue includes information on the war against Japan, the Japanese air force, Japanese suicide tactics, radar, Japanese flak defences, 'Fireball' anti-aircraft weapons, the 'Baka' suicide rocket plane, propaganda, accidents in the J.A.A.F., blockhouses in Hainan, technical intelligence, the ITO glider, German aero engines, the Rheintochter rocket, German air force signals, German night fighters, German agent activities, etc.
Well illustrated with diagrams, maps and photographs, including aerial photos, photos of captured enemy equipment, bomb damage, and enemy aircraft.
These reports were considered so sensitive at the time that all copies not required ‘for record purposes’ were to be designated as ‘secret waste’ and destroyed. Very few copies are likely to have survived outside official collections.
In good condition. The card cover is in good condition with minor signs of use. The stapled binding is very good and secure. The text, photographic plates and illustrations are in very good condition. Signed or initialled on the back cover by several officers, including 'AOC' and 'Brigadier Park'.
