Are these books available for sale anywhere, my Granddad C J Weight is in volume 3, he died when his Lancaster iced up in a snowstorm and went into the sea. His son, my Dad is trying to find out as much about his Dad as he can.
All the best

@Dave, some class books come up for sale on eBay, but it would be pretty rare to find the exact one you're looking for. Good luck.
