    Default General TNA AIR 76 Query

    Hi all

    In researching my inter-wars pilots, I have noticed a number of AIR 76 records that appear to be missing from the collection.

    I realise they (officially) only run to around 1928, I think it is, but I have noticed many missing within the open, digitised period, and they appear to be those KOAS and those Court Martialed.

    Has anyone else noticed this and/or does anyone know where these records are? Were they held in another collection, or are they still retained by the RAF?

    Thanks

    Steve,

    Unless there has been a change in recent times I think you will find that officer's AIR76 (and airmen's AIR79) which have been released only go up to about 1920-1921. The odd one or two may have slipped through but generally speaking the interwar ones remain closed.

    Cheers,
    Errol

    Hi Errol

    I thought that was more-or-less the case as well, but there are many from after that date and I've found it pays to check. Here are some examples:

    AIR 76/232/28

    AIR 76/97/10
    John Froude O'Reilly COLEMAN
    Joined on SSC in May 1926, entries date from 1925 (immediately prior to SSC)
