The Anniversary Edition
The SAS War Diary is released in a special limited Anniversary Edition to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the birth of the Special Air Service and to raise funds for the welfare work of the Regimental Association.
A strict limit of 3450 copies of the Anniversary Edition will be made available to the public. This is a worldwide release and will never be repeated. A further 1000 copies have been reserved for members of the Armed forces and the wider Services family as the Services Edition. In addition there are 550 Signed Editions for collectors and bibliophiles, details of both editions can be seen by clicking on the buttons on the right of this page.
Based on the original Diary held by the Regimental Association, The SAS War Diary is augmented with material from their archive, very little of which has ever been seen before.
The SAS War Diary is extremely impressive, measuring some 17 x 12 x 4 inches and weighing over 28lbs. Each copy is bound by hand in full leather over wood composite boards in the style of the original, with three brass posts and finished with a new blocking design featuring the Regimental badge and wings.
The individual copies are then numbered and the limitation page is embossed with the seal of the Regimental Association, as are the signature pages on the signed copies.
The Diary is produced using traditional materials in the traditional manner and is designed to last for generations.
