Halifax JD297 DY-Q "Queenie" 102 (Ceylon) Squadron RAFGot the ORB through from the National Archives. Amazing stuff F/O C F Read flew ten missions from what I can see so far. Hit by flack over the target area on one! Attacked by night fighters, attacked by another Halifax! With crew that tested Monica (radar to detect other aircraft below and behind)! Usual crew for the last four missions before Aachen raid with JD196 DY-J.

Finding Early Service NumbersHi Steve, I think when building the index, i had to remove numbers less than 10,000 for some vague reason that i cant recall now - so it does not have anything substantial 0-10000. Infact if you open the default page, it is sorted by service number and except for one - the second record starts post 10000. Let me look at the raw files to see if I have any data for the lower numbers that I did not load. Edit: Got these in one of my files - about 229 of them that were not loaded.
