A small scan of the front cover of MOVING BASES: ROYAL NAVY MAINTENANCE CARRIERS & MONABS in WW2, through the Korean War and after.

The deployment of specialised aircraft and component maintenance ships together with mobile air bases as key elements of the deployed fleets allowed the Royal Navy to fight as professional equals alongside the US Navy in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The book brings together original material and images, much of which is previously unpublished.

David Hobbs joined the Royal Navy in 1964 and qualified as pilot in 1970. He has flown a variety of aircraft and served in the aircraft carriers Victorious, Hermes, Albion, Bulwark, Ark Royal (IV) and Ark Royal (5). His log books contains 2,300 flying hours and over 800 carrier landings, 150 of which were at night.
