    Default Is there an ORB for the Fighter Interception Unit?

    Hello everyone

    A quick question - is there an ORB for the Fighter Interception Unit, and does anyone have a reference for it?

    Or even better, does anyone have any excerpts from it between late June and early August 1944?

    Many thanks

    Thanks Gerry and Col, that's most helpful indeed.

    I'm interested in the IDs of the Tempests flown by Joe Berry between June 28th 1944 and August 7th 1944, when he shot down some 50 plus (52 and one shared, I believe) V-1s during that period.

    I've managed to track down the Tempests he flew with 501 Squadron after that during August 1944 when he shot down a further seven V-1s.

    Regards

    Simon according to Brian Cull in "Diver! Diver! Diver!" Berry flew the same aircraft for all claims day and night EJ524/ZQY.

    That's great, thank you.

    I've actually got a copy of "Diver! Diver! Diver!" on the way, so thanks for the sneak preview!
