    Default RAF Bomber Command Target Codes, France / Belgium / Holland

    Hi,

    Would appreciate help with the Bomber Command target codes for France, Holland and Belgium. Example Z.836 for Chambly Railway Deport, ZB.924 for Vilvorde Depot, Lyon Marshalling Yard, Z.604.

    Any help with this list very much welcome.

    Kind regards

    Hi Steve

    You might need a trip to Kew for that one.

    Some years ago I posted on here about 1940 Target Codes, which I'd managed to unscramble when I was doing my research on 214 Sqn's ops during that period. I can't recall the exact details offhand (you can probably google and find the post) but basically it used two books up at Kew which cross-matched target codes and old Air Ministry Numbers (I think) with the actual targets.

    The books I looked at (File Refs were given in my post) concerned targets in Germany, but I'm sure that the adjacent file (by reference no) gave the list of 'non-German' targets.

    Good luck!
