    Default RAF Casualty Packs 1939-45 Public Access

    In 2012 the MoD undertook a consultation into the views of interested parties in releasing RAF Casualty Packs from the period 1939 to 1945 to public access at The National Archives.

    Please note the extent is limited to FB or Battle losses, FA or Accident Losses are excluded from the current consultation.

    The Outcome of the consultation has now been published.

    https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...alty_Packs.pdf

    The headline is:

    "MOD will therefore commence transfer of the RAF casualty packs to The National Archives in 2013. The packs will be released in date order, commencing with those created in 1939."

    When I approached the TNA for confirmation the reply was

    "We have agreed with MoD to select the RAF Casualty Packs. AIR 81/1-1488 are currently in the process of being catalogued and prepared for transfer to TNA."

    Dear Ross,
    This sounds like very exciting news. Are these the files that are currently held by the RAF AHB? If so I can see these answering many facts that have been elusive through the necessity of respecting the privacy of families and the casualties.
    Thank you for posting this.
    Best wishes
    James

    Hello

    Too bad the Army and Navy documents have already been transfered to TNA, and that the RAF casualty packs are the last one of the series. If 1939 is covered by 1488 documents, the total number will be very high. I hope to be able to have a look at a sample during my next visit to Kew....

    Like James, this should answer some questions about all RAF crews, when there's no Canadian or Australian crewmembers, or fighter pilots.

    Thanks Ross

    But we are still not going to find out the final and any other contributory causes, as you quoted the following:-

    "Please note the extent is limited to FB or Battle losses, FA or Accident Losses are excluded from the current consultation."


    Officially according to an RAF file in TNA, at Kew, "FB" simply meant that the cause was still unknown and it appears on many early Casualty Signals in an Accident File, whilst the investigation was continuing. A Battle casualty is a battle casualty.

    I saw parts of my Grandfather's Casualty File and only saw some of the Casualty Signals as far as the FB Category Signal 28 August 1940 whilst the Inquiry was still awaiting even basic details and the time of the crash, so I wrote back asking to see the file information that changed both the Category from 'FB' to 'AO' and also the later information which brought about the Cause changes on the Accident Card to F4 (as there were no F4 night bomber causes recorded in the Statistics before the end of September 1940) and I never got the further information.

    As to the final causes for Flying Accidents and other accident causes, we are still going to be kept in the dark I fear, unless you can find some clues in TNA, at Kew. This is a 'whitewash' of the actual or full facts I fear, many of which will now remain on extended closure it seems, beyond the 75 year closure term.
