    Default ORB's for Fairoaks, No. 18 E.F.T.S.

    I would be grateful if someone can point me in the right direction to the ORB's for RAF Fairoaks, No. 18 E.F.T.S. for 1942-1943. Someone provided me with a few of the Form 540's for Dad's wartime service at this airfield however, I am unable to find anything in the National Archives at Kew. Obviously I am doing something incorrect here.

    Hi Dave

    Strange, that, because it's about 5 miles from where I live at it's always been one word for as long as I've known it!
    ... But maybe like Heathrow was originally Heath Row.

    Hope you're well.

    All the best

    It is only one word. I didnít realized Iíd have to spell out: 18 Elementary Flying Training School (EFTS). in any event, it didnít show up on any searches I tried.
