RAF Cosford museum's book appeal raises thousands

An RAF museum has raised more than £3,000 following an appeal for donations of military and aviation publications.

The museum at RAF Cosford in Shropshire made the request for the books and magazines earlier in the year and currently sells up to 150 each week.

Items of historical importance are retained for the exhibition's archives.

A museum spokesman said some people were purchasing items and re-donating them back to the scheme.
