There is also what looks to be a workshop manual for "Gipsy 1 Aero Engine Volume 1 1st edition 1931" which has been imprinted 'Copy for Official Use Air Publication 1420' this book is the 1934 edition. It has handwritten on the cover in very large letters R119 and is signed on the cover and title page ' By command of the Air Council C Le(?) Bullock
