    Default ORB for No. 1476 ASR Flt - RAF Skeabrae, Orkney Islands - Dates 6 Dec 43 to 22 Dec 43

    Good Morning,

    I was wondering if anyone had the subject documents they could provide?

    Thanks in advance.

    Mike,

    If nothing else turns up, looks like you might have to pan out some hard-earned!

    As Col says, TNA holds the ORB for that unit. May I suggest you look at post #11 in this thread...

    Thanks to both Bruce and Col.

    Iím in Canada, so I canít easily get there myself. :-)

    Thank you for the suggestion with respect to the copying service. I previously have paid the fees to the TNA to download the scanned versions of the ORBs for 77 Sqn for Oct 44 to May 45 when my Dad served. However the ones I seek now arenít available online, so I thought within the network on here there may be others who would have downloaded already and were able to share.

    Iíll send a note to the suggested service and see what the costs are.

    I do have the specific dates, so that theoretically should make the search easier.

    I appreciate the feedback.

    Thanks All,

    Is it frowned upon within this group to share images of ORBs?

    I have 6 months worth or ORBs for 77 Sqn that I paid for and would be happy to share and it seems likely that there are many, many more pages out there and I'm curious as a new person to this group why they aren't shared?

    Perhaps a "sticky category" of this forum could be established where people can share ORBs?
