    Default G/C Willie Tait

    Hello,

    Do you know if the flying log book of G/C Willie Tait has been put in a museum or kept by the family ??
    I would like to have a look in the period of April to August 1944.
    Or someone on the board has a copy ??
    Thank you for your help !

    Hi Alain,

    in catalogue of TNA I found following records -non looks like your man:

    AIR 2/2768 More informationMISSIONS AND VISITS (Code B, 51): Egyptian Air Force and Army: half yearly reports by Group Captain N.H. Tait, British Military Mission 1937-1944
    AIR 2/2769 More informationMISSIONS AND VISITS (Code B, 51): Egyptian Air Force and Army: half yearly reports by Group Captain N.H. Tait, British Military Mission 1944-1947
    AIR 10/1321 More informationLecture on the Signal Organisation in the RAF by F/Lt V. H. Tait to the RAF Staff College 1927
    AIR 20/6187 More informationAir attacks on the German battleship TIRPITZ culminating in its destruction, Wing Cmdr. J.B. Tait, D.S.O., D.F.C. 1944 Nov.


    Also the list of Log Books held in RAF Museum Hendon shows only J. B. Tait.

    I am afraid I can not help you more.

    Thank you Pavel !
    I see that the logbook could be this one which is in RAF museum.
    Is there someone who could have a look to the logbook of G/C J B Tait ??
    I am too far away to make it myself ...

    Alain,
    Can confirm that James Brian Tait (nicknamed "Willie") is the JB Tait in the NA list of logbooks.
