    Default Closed Air-81 Files - The Policy and how to un close them

    http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a...air-81-series/

    I reckon a good 50% of the 21 Unclosed ones are due to people on this forum!

    Hi Paul,
    Do you know if a closed file exists for Charles Derek Whittingham?
    He was shot down and injured on July 29th 1940 whilst serving with 151 Squadron.
    I have been to the national archives but nothing was available at that time.
    I was hoping that his file was one due to be released.
    Kind regards
    Gerry

    I cant find a record of him nor Milne - Obviously a casualty file was not raised

    I know his detailed Personnel File would have been destroyed but the one of his posting should still exist - it should say if he was hospitalised ?

    Or the date of the incident is wrong

    Have you ever managed to get access to his log books to see what they say ?- His golf clubs were sold in 2011 so I would assume some of his heirlooms would exist

    You can search ALL the titles of the Air 81 files here

    Including the closed ones - which you can ask to be opened under FOI - takes about 2 months in my experience
