Cross & Cockade GB was formed in 1970 as the British arm of Cross & Cockade in the USA, which was formed in 1960. We changed our name to Cross & Cockade International when the US society folded in 1986. On 31st January 2007 they became a registered charity.
Cross & Cockade International (CCI) is the First World War Aviation Historical Society. There are around 1,500 members in 25 countries all over the world. They are registered UK charity number 1117741. All trustees, officers of the society and contributors to the journal give their services voluntarily. Their aim is to research and publish information on all aspects of the First World War in the air, 1914 - 1918. (This concerns mostly aviation subjects.) They are known for a high quality journal, produced quarterly, which contains articles written by the members.
A quick visit to their website will impress even the most jaded research hound. Their "shop" section can help you find the right article on the subject matter you have not found anywhere else. Their links section is one of the most comprehensive around. I have been a member for over twenty years and never regret sending in my yearly membership fees.
Highs: High quality research and publishing efforts. Published volumes arrive during their production dates.Lows: Not on CD yet.Verdict: After twenty years I am still a member. My association with this organization has done nothing but feed the love I have for this area of study
