    Default Air Marshall F J Linnell CB, OBE

    I am hoping that somebody might be able to help me identify this officer's duties in late 1941/early 1942.

    From NA/Kew I have a copy of a letter (9/2/42) addressed to him at the Ministry of Aircraft Production (MAP) but it gives no indication that I can decipher of his role or the branch at MAP that he might have headed up. It is only a guess on my part but he could have been Director of Production Canada and America (DPCA).

    I am sorry to say that trying to find an answer on the web is defeating my limited search skills. I can find mentions of him in 1943 when he was Director of Training at the Air Ministry but so far nothing earlier.

    Any answers or leads gratefully received

    Thanks Eddie I must be getting even more addled than I thought (I think it's the grey hair that saps your strength). I use Malcolm's site a fair bit but for some reason did not come up with that.

    To save time for other readers it seems he was Controller of Research and Development at MAP.
