    The Operations record books for 159 and 160 Squadrons in the Mediterranean area during 1942 are not complete and for some operations involving air combats it is difficult to get a clear picture of what happened.

    I found some complementing information in the 242 Wing ORB, AIR 26/326 but I hope that 205 Group ORB and Appendices can give more information.


    AIR 25/816 ORB 1941 Nov.-1942 Dec.
    AIR 25/823 Appendices 1942 July - Aug.
    AIR 25/823 Appendices 1942 Sept.-Dec
    .

    If anyone is willing to share information from these documents I am interested in the period July-October 1942.

    Regards
    Peter

    Does anyone have copies of the ORB for No.1660 Conversion Unit - particularly for postings in and out during April - July 1943 please?

    In return, I have copies of several No.5 Group Squadron ORB downloaded. Thanks, Andrew
