Received a copy of this offering a few days ago. It consists of a well packaged set of two CDs - the first has TEN items pertaining to British aero-engines; the second has TWELVE dealing with German motors.
Interestingly, no rotary engines get a look in.
The reproduction of the material is very well done. It has been duplicated using a camera rather than a scanner so the results are almost up to photocopy standard. Also, it apears that some of the manuals have been taken apart so that the pages can be set flat for processing which adds to the clarity.
In a couple of the items, the pages are out of sequence but they are all in there somewhere!
Well worth having, in my opinion.

I got mine last week. I was trying to post some .pdfs on this forum of a few of the pages, but couldn't manage it. It seems that QinetiQ donated their early aviation archives to Hampshire Libraries, who intend releasing further CD-ROMs.
