I am investigating a bombing raid on a bridge in my nabourhood and in the meantime found on top of the AIR 37/717 DAILY LOG documents a general TASK description. I have read tasks such as IMMEDIATE SUPPORT, the one I am looking for on 28/1/'45 for the 197 sqn, 146 wing reports as task PRE-ARRANGED SUPPORT.

This to me indicates the tasks, an attack on bridges by the complete 146 wing, was part of a bigger picture. The bridges in the end were not or partly attacked because of weather restrictions by the way.

Does anybody know, or know where to find or how to trace, the 'bigger picture'?
