    All - here is a spread sheet of all the AIR27 entries

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...1X4/edit#gid=0

    Anyone can edit this - I suggest that folks enter the names against files they have downloaded.. and reach out to them directly etc to save ourselves work.

    Well - How is everyone finding it - You can download your 10 files after order - a copy is sent to your email address - If only you could register more than once!

    However I am having trouble downloading a couple of large files - just hang or stops- maybe an issue with usage ? how is everyone else find it ?

    Sounds marvellous!
    Is this permanent or just a temporary offer during the coronavirus shutdown?

    Also - haven't had a chance to go and look yet - does what's available include combat reports? Sounds like it will.

    Hi Ian

    Combat Reports for WWII are available, but it looks like individually, rather than the whole file, unfortunately.

    That said, I was able to download bulk Combat Reports for 41 Sqn for WWI (AIR 1) FOC as well. There were four files covering the whole of 41 Sqn's war.

    Shame that files such as AIR 79 are not available, but that's understandable considering it's an income stream for one of the genealogy sites, so they wouldn't want to undermine it. However, I had hoped that Station, Wing, Group and Command ORBs might have been available, too, and some of the WWI Officer files in WO. I note that WWI British Army War Diaries are also available, but it appears that those for WWI RFC/RAF units are not - though happy to be corrected.
