    Default Pembroke Dock

    Does anyone have access to any sort of listing which would show the movements in and out of Pembroke Dock during August and September 1943.

    I am looking to see if I can establish when L/204 (Sunderland JM710) arrived back in the UK (having left Bathurst on 5th August) and then when it returned.

    Any guidance / assistance would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Pete

    One last go at this one, if I may, as this is a new area for me:

    Would there have been:

    An ORB for Pembroke Dock (as an RAF Station) and/or a flight control report for Pembroke Dock and/or an ORB for 204 Squadron (Pembroke Dock)

    If so, which of these would most likely contain flights in and out for 204 Squadron during August / September 1943?

    Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Thanks Dave

    As I am trying to answer a one off question for someone else, I don't want to go to too much expense (none if possible!) hence I am trying to establish which of the three (assuming all exist) is most likely to have the aircraft Ins and Outs if I go ahead and order it from TNA.

    I am assuming that the 204 Squadron ORB's that you mention are the ones for Bathurst (or are they specific to Pembroke Dock)?

    Regards

    Pete

    Pete, I would suggest you contact John Evans john.evans@sunderlandtrust.org.uk who lives in Pembroke and no doubt would have easy access to the information you need.

    Before I purchase this "undigitised file" , I just wanted to double check with the Coastal Command experts as to whether AIR 28/631 (Pembroke Dock ORB) is likely to cover all flights in and out of the Dock during the period I am looking at.

    I know ORB's vary in content, but in your experience do they generally show aircraft movements?

    Would there be a better alternate (such as a Flight Control)?

    Regards

    Pete
