    Also cannot stress enough that the NFT for any night-flying aircraft scheduled for operations would include the whole crew, and that one of the important things to check was that all the interior lights and switches were working, although spare light bulbs (lamps) were usually carried for all important illuminated areas and applications. The NFT abbreviation has been the subject of very many questions on this site over the years, so I am rather surprised to see it pop up again, and also the number of incorrect suggestions made. Should be on the usual lists of abbreviations for RAF in the WW2 era, including the permanent one on this site. Glad to see that the correct interpretation triumphed in the end!

    Peter, In answer to your question , no they didn't operate that night. Been trying to figure how to post an image, can't find instructions that works, so hopefully this external link might do.

    Snip! I’ve deleted my comment. After review, I concur with Night Flying Test as being most likely.

    If you look on Page 2 of the ORB you will see that that six aircraft flew operational defensive patrols that night.
