    Default Station ORBs for RAF CARNABY & RAF TUDDENHAM

    Does anyone have copies of the Station ORBs for CARNABY and TUDDENHAM for 1944/45? They are AIR 28/125 and AIR 28/860 respectively. Neither has been digitised but wondered if anyone had copied them from TNA.

    Many thanks
    Daz

    Daz,

    I have them, but they were photographed about 15 years ago, but still readable. How can I help.

    Chaz,

    Im trying to see if they record aircraft from 78 Squadron landing away there on return from operations and if so what detail does it give? I have a number of operations Im interested in checking, e.g. 17/02/45 returning from ops to WENZEL a total of 10 aircraft landed away at TUDDENHAM and one landed away at CARNABY.

    They may get no mention whatsoever but Ive be interested to see what it does say.

    Many thanks

    Hi Chaz, and sorry to butt in on this thread Daz, but if you have the Carnaby ORB for 1945, might you have pics for the night of 3-4 March 45 (Op Gisela) that youd be willing to share please?
    Many thanks in anticipation
    Ian

    Daz,

    The Station ORB just records the arrival of ten Halifaxes from No.78, and a single Halifax of No.76 on Feb 17th 1945. Nothing else I'm afraid. Send me the dates and I will check if needed.
