    Default RAF Jurby-Tinsel/Jamming sorties, April 1945

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have any information on any Tinsel/Jamming sorties carried out by Wellington and possibly Anson aircraft of the Air Navigation & Bombing School (RAF Jurby, Isle of Man) during April 1945?

    Mant thanks in advance,

    Russ

    I thought this question may prove tricky.

    I have tried to find in the NA some reference to an 'Air Navigation & Bombing School' , RAF Jurby ORB but again to no avail. Could anyone advise me if there was one and if so how to get a copy of the April 1945 entries.

    Many thanks again,

    Russ
