    Default 35 Squadron Research

    My research has now been extended to cover the history of 35 Squadron and I am wondering if this is the right forum for trying to establish the circumstances surrounding the deaths of its RFC crew during WW1.

    Would anyone be able to help if I posted a few at a time? (There are about 40 in all)

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Pete,

    Presume you have firstly checked Chris Hobson's 'Airmen Died in the Great War 1914-1918', which gives basic info such as date, unit, aircraft type, serial (where known), etc.? I would recommend using this source as your starting point then proceed to the Cross & Cockade International Society's forum (though you have to be a member to do this, I believe - http://www.crossandcockade.com/) or the Great War forum where there is a separate section for the air war (http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/index.php?showforum=25).

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction; the subject matter is new to me (having only focussed on a specific period during WWII so far) so I am trying to find my feet at the moment.

    I will follow up your suggestions.

    Regards

    Pete

    Note: Just found out the cost of the two books needed, so will have to visit the library today as the piggy bank has been hit by the recession!
    Additional Note: No luck with the library; that will teach me to live in the wilds of Wales
