    I looking for the ORB of the RNZAF 75sq for the Berlin Mission (75th of Novmber 1941) because I try to reconstruct the mission of 75 SQ for that day. I hope someone can help me with it. Or can tell me how can help me further. Or where I can find some information.

    Hi René,

    The National Archives at Kew hold the ORB's on microfilm, reference number AIR27/645. Don't forget to check the appendices in AIR27/649 because sometimes these contain interesting details. At the same time it would be advisable to check the operational orders for that night in the ORB of No 3 Group, reference number AIR25/52. A route map including locations with interceptions and combats can be found in AIR14/3371. Combat Reports of that night regarding 75 Sqdn can probably be found in AIR50/192. For the context of that night you may check Bomber Command's ORB with intelligence Reports in AIR24/237.

    Well, enough primary sources to reconstruct that night!

    Kind regards,
    Hans Nauta
