    Hurricane P2976 242 Squadron
    I have been making enquiries for several months with TNA, Kew and received photocopies of the following two files (in one TNA reference) today, below:-

    ADM 358/230 Midshipman (A) P J Patterson, RN: missing presumed dead; aircraft lost at sea, 20 August 1940 Attached to RAF

    Very disappointed with the lack of detail. NO 765(c) and NO AIB U610 report despite being recorded on the AM 1180. So pieces obviously MISSING.

    Regards Mark

    It was covered in a thread earlier this year, including some comments of those that looked at examples.

    The first tranche of 300+ files is in AIR 81

    Hello Paul

    Thanks for that. I don't know how you do it. I've been trying on Sunday afternoon, but couldn't only copy one line at a time, and so this was very time consuming... I mostly concentrated on the names that rang a bell, with a connection to my research area.

    Indeed your valuable efforts will save a lot of time to many researchers, and I'll make good use of it !

    Cheers

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you so much for this extraordinary piece of work. I cannot imagine the time and effort you put in for this. It is a great resource for many of us and will save us much time and frustration. Pity TNA didn't make it as easy for us !

    One silly question ! What does '&nbsp' stand for ?

    Regards,

    Martin.

    Its a bit of internet coding. The coding behind the text. Its meant to indicate a space in the text but has apeared. Someone else might be able to explain it more eloquently. Pretend its not there in effect.
