    Default AIR ? National Archives,

    Can anyone supply the correct AIR numbers for the following RAF Stations.
    I am struggling to navigate the site.

    Acklington
    Eshott
    Morpeth
    Grangemouth

    Kind regards

    Chris

    The stations you listed mostly had long term resident units and as such the station records were absorbed into the unit records and are on the whole in the AIR 29 series.

    Grangemouth - No.58 OTU AIR 29/684 (A small amount is contained in AIR 29/29, I once checked this file for someone and there wasn't much).
    Morpeth - No.4 AGS AIR 29/590
    Eshott - Only appears under No.57 OTU as AIR 29/683, I once viewed this file and it had a lot of Form 412s (Court of Inquiry) for the Eshott period.

    As a fighter station Acklington is largely covered by the AIR 28 series and then by the ORBs in the AIR 27 series for the individual squadrons when they were resident. The main file is AIR 28/17 as it covers the wartime period, but again there are potentially useful files in AIR 29.

    When I looked at the catalogue I searched for the station name and limited it to AIR, sometimes though there are incorrect spellings on the catalogue so there may be more files. For example I was once after a unit stationed at Cranage and it was Grange on the cat.
