    Default Fixed Price ORB and Document Copies from TNA files

    I've had a few requests for firm prices for part files.

    The following list is a growing catalogue of firm price document copy service for part files. I'll add new files as I access them for image count.

    No.3 (Coastal) OTU, ORB, Oct 1940 to Dec 1943, AIR29/705 (part), 270 images.
    No.5 (Coastal) OTU, ORB, Jan 1943 to July 1945, AIR29/705 (part), 183 images.
    No.9 (Coastal) OTU later No.109 OTU, ORB, Aug 1942 to July 1945, AIR29/705 (part), 209 images

    Each document consists of a series of 1.3 meg .Jpeg images of each page, with a 50% overlap on bound documents to compensate for binding distortion. Blank pages have not been photographed. The entire document size is as per the stated number of images.

    Information in the images are supplied subject to The National Archives copyright and use policy of "for personal research use only". Your attention is drawn to TNA limitations of use in published works including the web.

    Costs for this firm price document copy service are identical to those in my full file copy service.

    The No.2 Group Operations series is a superb overview of the daily operations of all the squadrons in the group.

    On a daily basis each op undertaken by an aircraft of the group is generally tabulated under the following columns:

    Station/Squadron/Time Off/Task/Time Landed/Aircraft Letter/Pilots Name/Primary, Alternative, Abandoned/Time (bombing)/Height (bombing)/Remarks, including alternative task and reason/Bombs Failure, Return/Bombs 40/Bombs Inc/Bombs Flares/Bombs Photos/Casualties, Our Aircraft/Casualties, Enemy Aircraft.

    As the war months progress slight changes are made to the reporting columns but the general content is similar.

    Information in the images are supplied subject to The National Archives copyright and use policy of "for personal research use only". Your attention is drawn to TNA limitations of use in published works including the web.

    Costs for this firm price document copy service are identical to those in my full file copy service.

    0.10 per image. Supplied on one disk, post and packing to any world wide destination free of charge. Payment by Paypal preferred.

    Ross,

    Just a small correction. From AIR14/3370 the name of the Documents are Interception - Tactics. Only night operations are included.
