    Default RAF Seletar ORB

    Does anyone know if the station ORB for RAF Seletar for the mid 1930s to the fall of Singapore still survives anywhere? I've checked the online catalogue at the NA and despite trying a number of different permutations I can't find one listed for that period. Alternatively, can anyone suggest any other documents I might want to think about looking at? My interest is obviously the time 100 Squadron were there, and to a lesser degree, 36 Squadron, who worked alongside 100 from Seletar. I've got a file reference for the 36 Squadron ORB for the period.

    Many thanks for any advice anyone can offer.

    Thanks Bruce. I'm not too sure how I managed to miss that, and I can't even claim to have been drunk because I'm off the booze at the moment!!

    Geg Could you please supply the reference for 36 Squadron. I am researching my uncle Andy Fleming who flew with the Squadron and was killed at Endau - I presume that is the document that is described as having the remarkable feature of few details of activities on 36 January 1942 in the Air Historical Branch's of the Campaigns in the Far East?

    kind regards Mike Smith
