    Default Where in National Archives is No.207 Conversion Flight - ORB?

    Hi All. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? I have this Squadron's ORB but I can't seem to find the documents which pertain to this Squadron's CF. Am I missing the obvious? Thanks, Andrew

    A lot of the Conversion Flight ORBs are included in the host squadron ORB but may not be in date order. If you have the whole lot then it may not be there at all. I don't know how consistent these inclusions are as I have only noticed them when I realise I am looking at dates I have already looked at.

    Hi Andrew, may be worth checking the Station ORB.

    Thanks all. I've had another look at No.207's ORB and I think it does cover the CF as well, just not very clearly. I was looking for the posting of a Sgt FB Dashper, who No.61 Sqdn's ORB says was posted in from No.207 CF on 18/10/42, but the corresponding entry seems to be missing - unless, of course, he was posted in from elsewhere. It wouldn't be the first time that an ORB was wrong!

    I will just have to keep looking ,as other sources suggest that he was at an OTU before No.61 Sqdn, so that's another possible line of inquiry. Cheers again to all. Andrew
