SLESSOR, AIR CHIEF MARSHAL SIR JOHN
Despatch by Air Chief Marshall Sir John Slessor on the Operations of Coastal Command from Feb. 5, 1943, to Jan 20, 1944
,This offering contains three items: a TLS dated 13th May, 1948, from Air Chief Marshall Sir John Slessor to Adm. Lorne McLintock (Superintendant of the United States Merchant Marine Academy), which begins: 'As promised I send you herewith a copy of my despatch on the operations of Coastal Command during 1943.. I am afraid you will find it somewhat severly critical of the U.S. Navy Department at the time, but also hope after reading it you will not feel I have been unfair.' In 1948 Slessor was serving with the Imperial Defence College and it is on that institution's stationary that the letter is written. The despatch is reproduced on 8 1/1 x 14 inch paper and contains 61 typed pages. At the head of the first page it is indicated that this is copy no. 39. Slessor was in command of British Coastal Command from February 5th, 1943, until January 20th, 1944, when he left England to assume command of the Royal Air Force in the Mediterranean and Middle East. Although lame in both legs from polio, Slessor managed to join the Royal Flying Corps in the first World War. he won the Military Cross for bravery. During World War Two, he helped shape Allied air strategy and, as head of Coastal Command, was credited with successes in fighting German U-boats from the air and saving supply convoys from North American. The third item is a copy of a newspaper notice of the death of Slessor. All items show minor wear and are contained within a somewhat worn manilla folder bearing the notation: 'for museum where Adm. D'Aquinos's books are'. .
