    Hmm, could we pin down those ref nos to a particular accidents? It sounds really weird why they were retained.

    I think they may be retained as they may be part of an ongoing enquiry that’s my my guess anyway

    Up to 2076?! I am not going to live forever! If we could nail down the cases closed, perhaps it would give a nature of them.

    I will put up a list in long tail ones later if anyone fancy’s a FOI request to get them to review - the long tail is probably due to fact someone else made enquiry on them in last 80 years or so

    Is it known if the situation is progressing or if work has been put on hold ?
    thanks

    Hello,
    Are some of the German documents/photographs available from a German source ?
    If so it may well explain the surfacing of photographs for sale on e-bay of captured and dead airmen.

    I have just received Mary Hudson's "RAF WW2 Operational and Flying Accident Casualty Files in the National Archives - exploring their contents", a 302 page study by a former RAF officer who used the files during her service. I got my copy via Amazon. SUPERB looking volume, very well illustrated. It has the appearance of a very useful read.
    cheers PeteS

    Interesting news from PeteS.

    In Australia, Mary Hudson RAF WWII Operational and Flying Accident Casualty Files in The National Archives: Exploring their Contents (Pen & Sword 2020)
    is available from Amazon and from Booktopia (which I prefer), in hardcover or as an eBook (cheaper but not my preference).

    Booktopia prices, new, are generally slightly lower.

    While Pen & Sword has had a patchy record in proofing/editing and, too often, poor to ludicrous image quality, this title (on preview at least) looks to be of first quality.
