  • Arrival date of 03/09/39 denotes a unit in place at the start of the war.
  • 1939-40. Units involved in the Battle of France returned with incomplete Operational Record Books leading to inconsistent entries.
  • Aircraft types are from RAF AM78 movement cards and recorded unit ORB losses.
  • Movement history is from primary sources of ORB's held at the Public Record Office, Kew, London. Secondary sources of published histories have also been used. Bibliography available on request.
  • Dates are in European format e.g. DD/MM/YY.
  • OTU's normally operated from a main base and satellite airfields.
  • No aircraft types are shown for OTU's due to the large numbers used.
