    Default 221 Sqn in ME

    Hello, Forumites
    In the operational reports submitted by this squadron in 1942, reference was made to “SI working well”, or “no interference on SI”. What did that abbreviation stand for?

    I can but grasp at straws on this one, and suggest that it may be a badly written (and you are about to tell me that the narrative is typed!) version of "S.E." (for Search Equipment, that is, Radar. This is even before I know what type of aircraft the squadron was equipped with, or its role!

    Hello David
    Thank you for replying. Yes, it was from a typed Ops Report! This “S.I.” was, it seemed, radio/radar equipment fitted to Wellington aircraft of 221 Sqn for anti submarine operations in the eastern Med. I have “adjusted” your thoughts to Search or Searching Instrument. On several of the post op. reports, comment was made of “no interference on S.I”, or “S.I. worked well”
    Thanks again
    Andy Wis
