    Default National Archives help required.

    Under what AIR would I find the ORB for RAF rescue Launches from Amble, Northumberland.

    Chris,
    The ASR units start at AIR29/441 in the N/A catalogue, i can't find Amble among the units. Could it possibly come under one of the units shown.

    Gents,
    nearest launch base was Blyth, but the RAF salvage vessel 'Kernooser', set sail from Amble, along with a RAF speed launch. It will have hopefully been recorded in the Blyth ORB.

    Thank you for your help

    Chris
