    Default Wellington IC X9741 service history

    Hi all,

    I am trying to put together the brief history of this aircraft. I have enough info but I am not able to decode the AMC record for 19.3.1944, it look like

    ?Manby?
    1 GAF or IGAF or LGAF

    I am not sure if I read the letters well but it does not make me any sense and also I am not able to find such a unit in my list of abbreviations.
    Anyone could help me to fill this gap?

    TIA

    Hi Colin,

    yes this unit came to my mind also, but it does not fit to the writing, I am pretty sure the last two chars are xxAF ...
    Also the Manby is not clear to be sure:(

    Hello

    Col's suggestion is correct, and confirmed in Air-Britain W1000-Z9999.

    The entry for X9741 is 311/1503 flight/TFU/1 AAS SOC 24 June 1944.

    Regards

    Joss

    Joss many thanks!
    Looks like this became to much for me:(
    I have been checking the Air-Britain W1000-Z9999 several times today but do not noticed this!

    Anyway - the writing for 1 AAS in AMC for sure does not looks like 1AAS:)
    And in the AMC there is not mentioned TFU and there is 1505 Flight instead of 1503 Flight. What a mess!

    Finally at least this bit is resolved.
