Roy, the book was "Canada's Wings" 1a The Blackburn Shark by Carl Vincent (Canada's Wings Pub. 1977).
The drawings were done by G.G. Hopp.[/quote]

Bill, just yesterday, I ordered a used copy of that book. There is an on-going build of the old FROG kit on Britmodeller right and that book was mentioned.

with a uniform to wear,
a fast aeroplane to fly,

Good call, I think it's the only book on the airplane that goes into that much detail.

In water flying attitude is everything
