    Default Operations reports for night of 8/9 June 1944

    Does anyone have the reports for operations carried out on the night of 8/9 June 1944 by any chance? I have the ORBs of a number of squadrons involved, but my real interest is in conditions over East Anglia. What information I have suggests the area was covered by stratus, base between 500 and 800 ft.

    Night Raid Report shows:

    Weather Forecast: Bases: Broken stratus cumulus and 10/10ths medium. Local rain and patches of cloud below 1,000ft.
    Weather Experienced: Bases: Rain became widespread by 02.00 and cloud fell below 700ft in patches. Visibility was poor and diversions were arranged.

    Not sure if this answers your question, but thought I would post it for you.

    Regards

    It is exactly what I need, Pete. I thought it would be something like that as warm sector conditions were covering East Anglia, but the charts I was looking at are a bit short of 'real' data.

    Much appreciated, thank you.
