    Default No.235 and No.404 Squadrons ORBs - June 30, 1944

    Hello/Bonjour,

    I am looking for the excerpts of the No.235 and No.404 Squadrons ORBs connected to the mission of June 30, 1944. The target was a small convoy in the Concarneau Bay, Brittany, France. Excerpts with full details would be very helpful. I thank you beforehand for your assistance.

    Best regards,
    Frederic

    Hi Mojmir,

    A question: Is there a General Index for the reels numbers? It is quite difficult to find out a Squadron.

    Best regards,
    Frederic

    Hi Frederic,
    Unfortunately, there is no Index: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...ks-and-Diaries

    I keep my latest index in Dropbox, it is free to view. In your browser use "ctrl-f" to search for a string such as "404". Moderators, can we make this address a sticky somehow?

    Bill,
    Very nice of you to share this index. To get the most out of the 'Sticky', can I suggest you start a new thread with an appropriate name and a short expalnation of the tricks & techniques of using the index?

    (Bill, Just found your earlier post with the link, have made it a Sticky in Data Projects. Many thanks)

    Regards,
    Bruce

    Looking at the attack carried out on the two minesweepers? Quite an interesting "sortie" that day.
