    Default IWM Camera Gun Film Index

    Hello Folks,

    this is probably old hat to you but if you run a search for the term

    "CAMERA GUN"

    in the "Name/Title Of Item" search box at this link on the IWM Collections Online
    http://www.iwmcollections.org.uk/qryMain.asp


    you will get up name lists of Combat Film's listed against Pilots names, squadrons and dates, aircraft type and a descprtion field.

    For example.
    Combat Film No 8828 Pilot Officer Sima Squadron 19 18/8/44 1610 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8829 Flight Lieutenant Collyns Squadron 19 18/8/44 1610 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8830 Flight Lieutenant Wood Squadron 19 18/8/44 1610 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8831 Warrant Officer Carson Squadron 19 18/8/44 1610 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8832 Pilot Officer Sima Squadron 19 18/8/44 1930 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8833 Flight Lieutenant Taylor Squadron 19 18/8/44 1930 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8834 Flying Officer Staples Squadron 19 18/8/44 1930 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8835 Flying Officer Paton Squadron 19 18/8/44 1930 Mustang Ground Target
    Combat Film No 8836 Warrant Officer Carson Squadron 19 18/8/44 1930 Mustang Ground Target


    Now problem is theres are hundreds of names and I don't have the will power to sort them into an excel sheet this side of 2050! Maybe though.

    I did save them all into a richtext file if anyone wants them to sort through. They might be a handy cross reference only, it is only surnames and ranks. PM me or shout whatever, my email is dp_burke at yahoo.com

    I sorted them by line only so far and there are 9061 reels listed, however most are duplicates if not tripicalates to I'd say there are only about 4000 separate reels in total..


    Incase anyone interested.

    Dennis
