    Just realised I mus have downloaded a few over the years and mostly the pre-war ones which can bu worthwhile as most cover all the pre war years in one file. Also some appendices can be enormous and I believe one or two are over 1,000 pages and over 100Mb.

    Now, where did I put them?

    PNK, keep them with you for now - but can you mark the spreadsheet - taht will allow others to concentrate on other stuff.

    Wow Thanks Malcolm for adding those entries

    I see you already have done a bulk of the work- 7300 out of 40000 done already Thats 7000 files less that we need to worry about.

    If I could make a suggestion. The limit of 50 files per 30 days is quite strict really, especially for people who cannot get to Kew easily (when its open). I only live about 10 miles from there so in normal times get there twice a week or so, so have downloaded most things I need. I do not anticipate therefore needing all my allocation of 50 files in thirty day. As such I will have spare capacity to download further files for other members if someone could devise a system of organising this.

    Just a thought

    Hello Jagan

    Can't add to the excel spreadsheet. It's always calculating and I can't move in the table.

    I've copied AIR 27/1526/35 and /36, in the AIR 27 series, plus other documents from other series.

    211 Squadron RAF
    I already have copies of
    AIR 27/1302 and AIR 27/1303 RAF Form 540 Summary of Events and Form 541 Record of Events
    from 1937 to 1941, and 1943 to 1946, on paper, plus April 1945 to March 1946 on CD-R

    AIR 27/1304 to AIR 27/1313 Appendices/Photographs/Sortie Reports
    Apr 1940 to May 1945 on CD-R

    These records, as now held by The National Archives UK, are very far from complete.
    In describing the purpose and intended scope and completeness of the Squadron's formal record,
    I've also compiled a list showing the extent of the forms and appendices that remain, and of the various losses/omissions.

    In order to make the main record searchable, I transcribed the Forms 540 and Forms 541 for the whole period 1937 to 1941, 1943 and 1946, with a selection of other Appendices.
    The volume and legibility of the 1944 and 1945 records (then only available in paper form) defeated me.

    Such transcriptions are liable to copy/omission/typing error.
    I can only say that for my purposes a searchable text has been invaluable, not least as an entrée to the originals.
    Access to the original records is of course invaluable, however, these themselves are equally subject to error and omission on creation.

    Over coming weeks I shall take advantage of TNA UKs offer and download the whole lot again in consistent format.
    In the meantime I've put my name against the 211 Squadron entries in Jagan's spreadsheet.

    I have added my files to the spreadsheet however there appears to be a glitch whereby many of the Records (F541) are missing for 1944-1945
