    Default 4 and 6 Group's ORB

    Does anyone have access to the 4 Group and/or 6 Group ORBs? I am interested in the records for 6 Group on 20th April 1944 and for 4 Group and 6 Group on 4th February 1945.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    The Canadian Archives hold a copy of 6 (RCAF) Group ORB and the link below should lead to 20th April 1944

    http://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/oo...5/1455?r=0&s=3

    The website is often very slow but does speed up on some days. The days within the months on this ORB progress forward -> but for some reason the months are in reverse <-. Some pages are unreadable but I can't recall what months they were in.
    Use the drop down page selector as there are quite a few pages in some months. The last number in the link is the zoom level so change it to 1 to get small pages to open them quicker. Hope this is what you were after.

    This ORB contains a lot of useful information on some of the less glamorous side, such as water supplies, the moving of Tholthorpe's control tower, runway lighting and so on.
