    Default Halifax Delivery Dates (35 Squadron)

    Is anyone able to provide delivery dates to 35 Squadron for the following Halifax MKI:

    L9495
    L9501
    L9503
    L9506
    L9511
    L9525
    L9579

    I have utilised all my available resources but can't find dates other than .... / ...... / 1941.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Primary source is the Form 78 Movement Card at RAF Hendon.

    Unless someone had transcribed them and published the info in either book or internet the dates will still be locked in these documents and the only way to be sure of the info is to check the source.

    Hi Pete,

    Have you checked Form 540 from the 35 Squadron ORB's? My copies don't go far enough back but the ones I do have seem to have noted the serials of aircraft arriving and where they came in from.

    Regards

    I have used the ORB's but can find no reference to these ones although they are listed in the Air Britain listing and I believe that one of them was used by the squadron at an inspection by Winston Churchill at RAF Northolt.

    I will e-mail RAF Hendon today to see what they can come up with.

    Regards (and thanks for your interest)

    Pete
