    With a list like that trip to RAF Museum Hendon would be the best bet. A few hours in the reading room with the microfilm reader will clear all those.


    The AM Form 78 Movement Cards will show when they were TOC/SOC from the unit (where the AB unit data comes from but they omitted the dates)

    That is my "fall back" position, but I live in West Wales, with animals to look after, so getting away is never very easy.

    I do regularly contact the museum, who are always extremely helpful, but I was hoping that someone may have some (or all) of the information so that I could give them a bit of a rest ... but it looks like another online enquiry will be on the cards.

    Regards
