    Default Writing Off A.P. 830 and AM 78

    Extract from A.P. 830, 1925, paragraph 1312.

    Chapter XXI.

    PROCEDURE FOR WRITING OR STRIKING
    “MACHINES” OFF CHARGE.

    I.–Aircraft.

    1312.
    Aircraft damaged by a flying accident or deteriorated
    owing to service or climatic conditions to an extent beyond the
    capacity of the unit concerned to repair, may be struck off
    charge on the authority of an A.O.C. concerned without regard
    to financial limits, provided that there is no presumptive evidence
    of contributory negligence or other culpable default. Such
    transactions are not treated as formal “losses,” and are thus not
    subject to the financial limits laid down in Appendix VI. to the
    King’s Regulations and Air Council Instructions for the Royal
    Air Force.


    Incidentally in 1942, the above mentioned Appendix VI, refers to the:-
    “Procedure and Financial Powers in Relation to Losses and Compensation”

    A.M. 78

    F1623
    According to some AM 78s some RAF aircraft were written off using the F1623 'Daily Arrival and Departure of Airframes and Engines' form.

    F149
    Other aircraft were written off with an F149 according to some other AM 78s.

    RAF King's Regs Relating to Form 149 (K.R. 2413, dated 1942)



    A.M.O. A.71/40
    Some aircraft were written off under a 1940 Air Ministry Order A.71/40 according to some AM 78s. The Whitleys damaged and written off in an enemy air raid on RAF Driffield 15 August 1940 were written off under this A.M.O.

    and I have one other aircraft written off on an A.M. 78 using an S.D. number (Secret Document), unknown to me.
