    Default I.A.Z. Abbreviation 1940?

    An ORB states that enemy aircraft entered the IAZ during the Battle of Britain. Does this stand for 'Inner Artillery Zone', and if so where was it roughly and what did it consist of? I am familiar with the artillery no-fly zone and coastal defences during the V1 onslaught in June-August 1944. Was this similar, in principle?

    Thanks

    Hi Steve,
    It fits, as the term was in use for years prior to WW2. There are a few files at Kew covering IAZ matters going back to 1923. DEFE 51/33 is on the subject and dated 1940.

    Hope this helps,
    Bruce
