    Default Wellington File ? Air Britain

    On my shelves I have the Lancaster File, Halifax File, Stirling File, Hampden File and I think also the Whitley File but no WELLINGTON File ?? Is there a Wellington File ?

    I tried googling it but didn.t have much luck. I'm desperate for a source to help me ID all Wellingtons which served with 57 Squadron, any pointers gratefully received.

    I'd buy a copy this afternoon if anybody can point me towards one.
    thanks to all

    Sorry to say there was no Wellington file.
    I guess you would have to purchase all the separate AB serial books to pick out the Wellington info....

    Thanks Gents
    An opportunity there for somebody I'd say. Approx 11,460 aircraft built I believe and used on all fronts in a wide range of roles.
    cheers Pete

    No Wellington File, but there was a Wellington Crash Log 1937-1942 published by David J.Smith copies can be found on ebay etc now and then. For some reason Dave only produced this one volume.

    As I have not seen any of these books, what are they about, a listing of all serial numbers, or service histories ? I ask because I note the 'Lancaster file' , but having recently got the 'Avro Lancaster- The Definitive Record' 2nd edition -Holmes, I cannot imagine anything better and more detailed than that book.

    A good place to start would be the RAFWEB site which has a listing of 57 Sqn Wellingtons. It’s author is Malcolm_raf of this site….
