THE PATRIOTS • A PICTORIAL RECORD • VOLUME ONE • 45500–45525

This new fund-raising pictorial book contains many previously unpublished photos of this much missed class of locomotive. Contained in its 120 pages are over 100 superb monochrome and colour photos which span four decades from introduction to the LMS in the 1930s to the demise of the entire class in the 1960s, all capturing the Patriot class in its original parallel boiler form as designed by Sir Henry Fowler. All profits from the book will go directly towards the completion of The Unknown Warrior.
