Got mine yesterday from Amazon. Very interesting book.

Did anyone else go through it first looking at all the vehicles to see if theirs appeared?

Got my copy today from Smiths. Yep, the £12.99 was honoured. Now, can anyone help me identify if it is a new reprinted copy I have, or if its one of the older prints? Whats new in it?

My copy from smiths came through the post last friday, I havent had a proper chance to compaire it with my old copy yet, but the price on the back of my old one is £19.99 also if you look at the photo on the back the new one tells you that it was taken at RAF Halton courtesy of Richard Caney (Halton is my local RAF base and if you look at the photos I took on spta you will see Richard's 90 gs)

Hope that helps mate
Cheers

Cheers mate,

Looks like my bargain from Smiths is indeed the 2010 reprint. I am really chuffed with that.

The changes are that some new photos have added, or indeed swopped. Possibly the most interesting in my view is one of a wheel barrow carrier in use by 321 Explosive Ordnance unit Company, RAOC on operations in South Armagh in 1981. This photograph was supplied by Paul Wharton a former bomb disposal officer.
Ref the changes in text are fairly minor some new facts have been added to various parts including the addition on the use of Cypriot National Guard vehicles in the Rover 1 chapter. Book is the same number of pages.
