    Hi Chris

    I can do that but its not as simply as just looking a t list for each airfield, units controlled by different Command/Groups/Wings could be located on the same airfield and I need to go through each one separately, so I'll probably not have the time until the weekend.

    Cheers

    No problem Malcolm and thank you. At your convenience please, there is no rush.
    If it's any easier my primary interest is MU's, RSU's (Repair and Salvage Unit) and any others asscociated with aircraft servicing. Could I also add to that list:

    -Amendola
    -Bari
    -Brindisi
    -Celone
    -Cerignola
    -Foggia Main

    Thanks for your patience
    Chris.............
