    Default Operation Order 4 Group 12/13 June 1944

    Does anyone have a copy of the 4 Gp Op Order for operations on the night of the 12/13 June 1944. Im interested in the route, timings and bomb loads.

    Many thanks

    Daz: Were you able to get anywhere with this request? I have some "Form B's" for March 1945 only. You should be able to get the routes from other documents and the ORB's should record bomb loads, however I think only the Form B's would indicate mount of fuel to be taken. You could potentially derive the fuel load by subtraction of the bomb load and from the permissible "all-up weight" of the aircraft, but this would be a rough calculation only.

    Jim,

    No luck yet, sadly the ORB doesn't record bomb loads.

    I seem to have the 8-Group Form "B's" for this night. PM me with your email address. Not 4-Group but the next best thing. Beggers can't be choosers! :-)
