    Default 10 and 119 Squadron ORB look up

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone has access to the 10 Squadron or 119 Squadron ORB. I am after information concerning the loss of Short Sunderland X8274 of 119 Squadron, CC on 19/20 June 1941. I have crew list but if there are any other details concerning the loss listed I would appreciate hearing from you.

    thanks in advance

    Adam

    Hello,

    I was not a Short Sunderland, but a Short S.26:

    The ORB of 10 Squadron RAAF (to which belonged several victimes) is available online on the Australian Archives website:

    Click on view Digital Copy, on the right of the screen, June 1941 starts on page 387. Evocation of the loss of the above aircraft (and search for it) is on page 398
