    Theo

    For those of us who don't know, what does B.M.P stand for?

    Regards

    Mike

    Theo,

    I am sorry but to my surprise there was nothing on this night in AIR 14/3373.

    Regards,

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for letting me know -I couldn't find the document myself either, but thought I had overlooked it somehow, but you give me confirmation that it's apparently not in the file AIR 14/3373...

    Cheers, Theo

    Hi Theo,

    There might be some information in the series called Interception and Tactics. For January 1943 the document is:
    AIR 14/3742 Interception and Tactics Vol. V, 1942 Nov.- 1943 Apr.

    I have no experience of these documents. Possibly duplicates of the Interception/Tactics night reports or completely unique documents.

    Regards,
    Peter
