    Default Air 24/281 and Air 24/282 - Operation 'Overlord'

    A long shot I'm sure, but would anyone have a copy of either of these files? I believe they might contain the forecasts issued to crews for operations on the night of 5-6 June 1944.

    I don't have the files you are looking for but the night raid report (No. 625 in AIR14/3412) has the following:

    WEATHER FORECAST
    Bases:- Fit all night with little cloud and good visibility
    Germany: - Little cloud in the NW. Much cloud elsewhere
    France: -Broken strato-cumulus in NW (5-8/10ths in Cherbourg area). Base 3,000', tops to 5,000'. Very good visibility.
    Cheers

    That's extremely kind of you David - just what I'm seeking.
