A note about the price of the calendar; The C&C website shows the price in Pounds Sterling and not in Euros.

The 2022 issue of the Cross & Cockade calendar continues the well-established tradition of past year’s calendars: that being of high quality with excellent artwork. As in past years, you are advised to order your copy now, and not wait. There may be a limited supply of these calendars and you do not want to miss out because you waited until the supply ran out.

According to Roger Tisdale of Cross & Cockade the profits from the sale of these annual Cross and Cockade International Calendars go to assist in the upkeep of the British Air Services Memorial at the St-Omer airfield in northern France”. This is a very worthy cause and deserving of your support. One can check out the St-Omer Memorial at http://www.webmatters.net/txtpat/?id=258

Beside the fact that you will be contributing to the upkeep and maintenance of this significant Memorial, the artwork on the calendar is stunning. Consider it an early Christmas present you can give a friend, or yourself, for that matter.

The calendar is 81/2 inches by 12 inches. The pages are “bound” on a set of small metal rings that allow for each month to be flipped to the reverse side, thus keeping the calendar together rather than having to remove each month’s page and discarding it. A small, sturdy mounting wire allows the calendar to be hung from a traditional picture hanger, a push pin, or a nail/screw head.

Each month features artwork as indicated by the chart, as seem below, that was copied from the C&C website. One of the pages in the calendar includes the name of each artist and a website featuring that artist’s work and/or an email with which the artist can be contacted.

The calendar can be ordered by visiting the C&CI website. Know that your payment is a contribution to the maintenance and upkeep of the British Air Services Memorial at the St Omer airfield in northern France.

This table shows the artist and the subject matter of their excellent painting that appear on each month’s page on the calendar.

This calendar is highly recommended due to the excellent artwork, as well as the fact that the proceeds go to the British Air Services Memorial at St. Omer. Thanks to Roger Tisdale and C&CI for providing this calendar to IPMS/USA for review.
