    I've got photos of most of the pages of the ORB for RAF Woodbridge emergency airfield, for the period 1943-45.
    Got a lot for Manston in 1945 too, but that's most disappointing in its detail by comparison.

    Has anyone got the ORBs for

    12 EFTS (Oct 40- Feb 41)
    9 SFTS (Dec 40- April 41)
    56 OTU (April 41 - June 41)

    Looking for any entries or data related to Indian pilots training in the Oct 40- June 41 time period - including any course photographs..

    Hi Jagan

    Sorry, can't help you with those.

    For what it's worth, there were no Indian pilots on 41 Sqn between 1916 and 1946 - my main concentration - but you can see some stats on 41 Sqn pilot demographics for WWII here: http://brew.clients.ch/stats.htm

    Are there any of my files (first post in this thread) that you are interested in?

    Regards
    Steve

    Jagan,

    If 9 SFTS and 12 EFTS were the Canadian units documents can be found at

    http://heritage.canadiana.ca/search/?q0.0=c-12347

    on the digital version of the microfilms C12347 , C12348 and C12338

    Take care !

    Luc

    Unfortunately those are only for Canada. UK had the same numbered units. I believe the Canadian ones are distinct from the UK ones and use (Canada) in the unit names..

    Hi Jagan

    I have the F540 for 56 OTU covering this period but only casualties are listed, no course lists but there may be son in the Appendices, which I don't have.

    Maruisz - In the pages that have been shared - there was a page with mention of indian names in there - Pujji and Ullah - but that was just what i was looking for. Thank you Once again.

    Malcolm - Appreciate the offer and advice on the appendices.

    Evening to all

    Is there something similar to the Air 27 spreadsheet as I have a number of Air documents copied that might be of use to others

    Regards

    If you check the AIR 27 spreadsheet (link is in the other thread http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...-Sheet-Tracker), you will see that I have the ORBs for nearly every Hurricane and Spitfire unit. And I am willing to exchange with something from this list of files:
