    Default Pilot log books

    Hi,

    I know the RAF Museum and possible the National Archives hold a number of log books. Is there a searchable list of these log books?

    I'm doing some more Gladiator research at the moment and I'm trying to find some log book extracts for 263 Squadron pilots who operated over Norway between April-June 1940.

    Regards,

    Alex

    Hi Alex

    I've just sent you an e-mail with the list of Hendon logbooks attached. I recently asked them for a copy of a logbook, and received the reply, "The costs for copying [this] log book is 44.42 + 12.06 (P &P), please note that we require a deposit of 50% for any copies costing above 30."

    The NA has a list of the the 249 logbooks it holds, in TNA AIR 4. Here's the link: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/browser.asp?CATLN=3&CATID=454&GPE=False&MARKER=0

    Cheers

    Hi Steve,

    Many thanks for the email with the log book list, much appreciated. I'll have a look through the NA link and see if they have any log books for the pilots I'm looking into.
