    Good afternoon,

    Does anyone know the names of the Officer Commanding of the two Tac/R SAAF units, Nos. 40 and 41 between 1943 and 1945?

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Phil,

    The relevant SAAF ORBs are available on the TNA website for free and will give you the information that you need. With the pre-view function, you don't even have to download them.
