    Don't forget Daz, all Squadron ORB's (if present) can be downloaded for free at the moment from the TNA website.

    Dennis,

    Thanks, sadly I've used my quota so can't download any more at the moment.

    You can still view the preview, which although lower quality, can still yield answers, assuming the logo doesn't obscure the bit you are interested in. I went through about 50 different squadron's wartime ORBs that way, only purchasing the bits I couldn't read. This was pre-covid and the quota of free downloads.

    I bit expensive otherwise as my research requires viewing almost all the UK based Squadron ORBs. Just passed the 250 mark in 2 years! Still a way to go.

    Default Orb 35 sqn raf

    I have checked the National Archives and the ORBs for the abovementioned sqn appear to AWOL. If anyone has copies I am particularly interested in the period Dec 41 - Feb 42 and the postings in and out of NZ402998 Sgt Herbert Hadfield; a WOp/AG. Regards, Terry
    PS. Apologies for lower case in title!

    I have omitted in my previous post that also ORB of the No. 4 SoTT at St. Athan maybe useful for my recent research:

    AIR 29/737
    Operational Training Unit: 4 School of Technical Training, Henlow and St Athan (UK). Includes photographs of equipment. With appendices
    Date: 1941 Jan-1949 Dec

    This time I am interested in period July - September 1943.

    TIA

    Does anyone happen to have a copy of the ORB for No 19 OTU for the period June 1940 to October 1942?

    Regards

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
