    Default National Archive ORBS - "Preview" Changed

    Just been onto 165 Sqn ORB at National Archives and they now appear to offer low res with watermark Previews and no more 'Chess Board' anymore!

    Anyone else notice this, and is it on all ORB's ?

    Hi Paul,

    thank you very much for pointing out on this very useful feature which I have not noticed before.
    I can confirm it is available also for 311 Sq ORB.

    I have been through about 10 different Squadrons in the last few days and all are in the new format. I suspect it is the default now.

    As I am only looking for bombing and firing range information this is a great move. Most ORB's record little or nothing on this subject so it has saved me a fortune as I can now select the ones that are useful. Of those 10 Squadrons I only required two downloads. Not sure of the hit rate but it must be below 1% and saves me paying 3.50 for sheet after sheet say "no operational flying carried out".

    I have tried few more squadrons and all have the preview option now.
    That is great improvement, now the question is when TNA would digitize also ORBs of other units and stations?:-)
