JOHNS, W.E. (author). Worrals of the W.A.A.F. London; Lutterworth Press. 1941.

8vo. Original light blue cloth lettered in darker blue to spine, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [iv], 5-119 + [u]; with black-and-white frontispiece; a very good copy with mild toning to spine and a few speckles to edges of book block; internally lightly and uniformly toned, but clean, with a single small fox spot to frontispiece which has offset to title, protected by a very presentable example of the rare unclipped dustwrapper (3/6) with overall dust-soiling, particularly to spine, toning to the same, chipping to spine ends and forecorners, rubbing to joints, 3 short nearly closed tears to top edge (longest 28mm to lower joint) and a small scuff to upper panel, partially erasing "e" of the title.
First edition, first impression, of the scarce inaugural title in Johns's popular Worrals series, issued early in World War II, presented in the first issue dustwrapper with the advertisement for A Girl Flyer to the lower panel rather than one for Worrals of the W.A.A.F. which appears with reviews on the second issue jacket.
