    Default 13 Squadron ORB

    As part of my research into the history of 13 Sqdn's Blenheim Mk IV T2254 I obtained copies of the ORB from the National Archives, covering the period from July 1941 upto and including June 1942.

    Regretably, for the period upto May 1942 the NA only have the Forms 540 and are missing the Forms 541 which of course give valuable details on aircraft and crews.

    I noted there's a tremendous amount of knowledge going around on this forum so would any of you know of another source for ORB's? Already checked the Air Historical Branch and RAF Museum.

    Thanks in advance !

    Hi Nick,

    I didn't realise there was such a thing as station ORB's! Definitely worth a search on the NA website.

    Many thanks for the tip.

    Cheers,
    Walter
