    AIR 81/1831 – Pilot Officer H A Lovell: killed; aircraft accident, Waltham Abbey, Hurricane L1724, 151 Squadron, 18 February 1940

    was opened 28th April 2022

    Now to start on my next batch of long tailed ones opened ...


    of the 223 closed files most (134) will be opened automatically on the 1st Jan in 2023 to 2026 - I focus on getting the long dated ones which are due to be opened in 2030 onwards etc brought forward and start with oldest ones first
