    Hello

    thanks Malcolm for the unit of Fred ADCOCK. I'm puzzled because No. 147 Wing was then based in Hunsdon, and I'm really wondering why he's buried in France. I'll have a look at the Wing ORB next time I'm in Kew, thanks to your information. I had copied it until July 1944... Too bad, 3 months too short...

    Hi Joss

    Could 147 Wing have had some ground personnel based in France to service their aircraft using forward bases?

    Hello Malcolm

    I don't know. It's a possibility. I was thinking of a traffic accident, involving a small party of fitters from No. 147 Wing going to the continent to service/repair a Mosquito which had landed on a French airfield. Will post if I can find an answer in the Wing ORB.

    cheers

    Hello

    I was in Kew yesterday so I checked AIR 26/211 the ORB of No. 147 Wing. I had previously read that ORB, but my digital pictures ended in July 1944. The reason is that the ORB in AIR 26/211 ends that month, and there's no further page.

    Does anybody has an idea where one might access this Wing ORB from August 1944 till the end of WW2 ?
