    Default "Locak IHR" flight, August 1940

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask for help with decoding flight flown by a RAF pilot in August 1940 on Wellington I noted as "Local IHR".
    The letters IHR are clearly readable but there might be a typo as I am not able to find this abbreviation anywhere

    TIA

    Could it possibly be a mis-typed 1HR, as in one hour?

    Regards

    Simon.

    Hi Simon, you got the point!
    One fligt has duration 1.10 and the other 55 minutes so it fits.
    Moreover I was able to decipher the whole as "Local 1 hr each" as there were two pilots aboard.
