    Default Seeking copy of No. 5 OTU Aston Down ORB for September/October 1940 - can anyone help

    Really need some help on this. Currently trying to get a copy of the No. 5 OTU (Aston Down) Operation Record Book/Diary for the months of September & October 1940.

    Trying to track the transfer of P/O Jacques Chevrier (C865) and P/O B.A Hanbury (C1329) leaving the RCAF Aux Squadrons 110 & 112 and going to No. 5 OTU for Hurricane conversion training. They were eventually transferred to No. 1 (F) RAF Sqd for most of October 1940.

    Seeking copies of the ORBs to obtain course number, possible number of flights made, and SOC and TOC dates.

    Does anyone have a copy of these ORBs? With covid on it is nearly impossible to get a copy request submitted to Kew Gardens with the backlog.........

    Anyone help?

    Chevrier joined 5 OTU on September 15th 1940 and then 1 Squadron on October 3rd.

    Hanbury joined 6 OTU on September 16th 1940 and 1 Squadron on October 3rd.
