    Default BOAC personnel in the BOAC/TAF "Tedder" Plan

    I am researching a Danish radio officer in BOAC, who served in North/East Africa from (at least) Asmara and Almaza. As far as I can gather this was part of the Tedder Plan or the BOAC/RAF Plan. I am trying to figure out how to find more information about the (civilian) aircrew in this plan.

    My man's name was R/O Jensen. Documents suggests that he served alongside a R/O J. J. Rimmer and R/O V. H. Goodwin.

    In late 1944 they were requested to attend the Command Medical Board, RAF, in at Heliopolis Palace Hotel.

    Any information that might get me further in my research, is very welcome. I have spent years finding were little information so far.

    Regards

    Bruce,
    Thank you. I had been searching in the NA catalogue, but had not used this query. I agree, that these files may be a way forward.

    Mikkel/Bruce,
    Be interesting to know if you come across any RAF Service Numbers for these guys. I am interested in the Block 559001- 559292 (total 292), RAF, Sect II Class E, Reserve Imperial Airways. There might be some connection(s) - just keep a mental "sticky" as you sieve through this, and give me the 'heads up' if you find anything!!
    TIA
