    Hello Richard,
    I may have viewed them when looking into Warboys history a few years ago, I will have a look.

    Hello Richard,

    I've taken some digital pictures of PFF NTU ORB during my last visit to Kew, early 1944, to see if one of "my" subjects was mentioned in it.

    e-mail me if you want a sample.

    Hi Joss, I'd be fascinated to see the same information if you're happy to forward on.

    Very many thanks,

    Hello Richard,

    There's no e-mail address in your profile, so I can't reach you. E-mail me first.

    Has anyone got the PFF NTU records from August 1943 that they would be willing to share?
    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    Presumably the records mention permanent staff, but are any students listed in the PFF NTU ORB please?
