    Hello All,

    Can anyone confirm the meaning of the following abbreviations contained within the AM78 for Martinet NR598.

    1/ What was T.D.F. - Oakley

    2/ C.S.A. or C.S. (a)

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    I have:

    1/ TDF - I suppose Torpedo Development Flight but it was located at Gosport.
    For Oakley I found in Sturtivant book following:
    Target Aircraft Development Unit - Oakley from 3/44 to 8/45
    Master, Martinet (HP216), ...

    2/ CS(A) - Controller of Supply (Air or Aircraft)

    BR

    Hi Tim
    Oakley, from Malcolms rafweb site was a satellite a/f but he doesn't record it's parent.Oakley is in Buckinghamshire but quite close to Oxford which might suggest Kidlington or Bicester as possible parents(I am sure there are others)both of which are NE of Oxford as is Oakley. That far inland might go against Torpedo developement but the T may be Training..
    Regards
    Dick
