    Default 2 Group, Bomber Command, July 1941

    Guys,

    In the 2 Group instructions to 18, 21 and 139 Squadrons it says:-

    'In all the above attacks the approach to the target to be under 2.G.O.O. 27. The attack is to be carried out only if conditions as laid down under 2.G.O.O. 24 exist. Time as early as possible, but the attack should not be carried out later than 1200 hrs as best cloud conditions are expected before this time.

    In advance of my next trip to Kew, does anyone know what standing instructions 2.G.O.O. 24 and 2.G.O.O. 27 are?

    Regards,

    Hi Nick

    Never heard of them but (guessing here) would it stand for something like General Operational Orders?

    Guys,

    That is what l was thinking and will review earlier documents to see what they say but was hoping someone had been there already.

    Will let you know my findings.
