    Default Uxbridge Enlisted Numbers Issue

    Hello All,

    Does anybody know when RAF Uxbridge ceased to be a Recruiting/Induction Centre in WW2?

    As far as I can see Uxbridge issued Enlisted Block Numbers 900000-934899 between 1 Sep 39- 30 Apr 40, 1250001-1299800 between 1 May 40-31 Oct 40, and 1330001-1340000 from 1 Nov 40 until when??? If anybody knows when they ceased issuing that Block I would be very keen to know it!

    The info is needed in connection with 4 fatalities in an Anson in 1942.

    TIA

    RAF FT&SU and Malcolm's RAFWEB site shows No 1 Recruits Centre moving to Gloucester on 3rd December 1940.

    Full text shows: This was formed on 4 January 1940 at Uxbridge as part of the reformed No 1 RAF Depot.. It moved to the Wessex Hotel in Gloucester on 3 December 1940 and then to 31 Victoria Road, Penarth in No 24 Group on 20th January 1941. On 13 November 1942 it was transferred to No 20 Group, moving to Melksham on 8 March 1945 and to Yatesbury on 1 December, where it disbanded on 31 August 1947.

    Regards

    Pete

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
