    Hi Jon

    Frederick Ridge 1108861

    Regardless, in official RAF documents and terminology, all Airfield Construction Sqns were numbered in the 5000 series, not 6000, which was allocated to Flights.

    The SD161 definitely quotes that 6021 was a BD Flt but was under the control of No 5134 ACS at the time.

    It wouldn't be the first time a clerk in the Records Office entered incorrect details, which then got passed on to CGWC
