    Gloster Javelin Sightings

    Hello all. It's been a while since I've posted, but I figured this might be a decent place to ask about Javelin survivors. I've seen a couple now, and I'd like to see more of them. As I understand it, not too many are left. Have any of you seen any in the various museums in the U.K.? Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't help you with this quest but if you're interested, there's a new book just out, "Javelin Boys" by Steve Bond. You'll be able to get a copy from Amazon (who are already advertising it) or Grub Street Publishing who are taking orders. I have given him my 2cent worth of info and it appears in chapter 5.
