RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
The last list seemed to interest people and is now a bit outdated. I checked all links below, modified some and added those listed in the comments and some others.

Any comment and addition welcome, off course.

Ruy, maybe you can un-anchor the old thread and replace it by this one ?

RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (on 9 November 2009):

Note: for all ORB in Australian archives (starting with http://naa12.naa.gov.au), the direct link listed below won't work. You have first to connect to them. Go to the page http://naa12.naa.gov.au/ and click on Guest, that will open a connexion for you, then all links listed below will show you the right document (to see i treally you have then to click on the "View digital copy" button)

Hello All,
Yet another "Newbie" I am afraid! - Has anyone by chance the ORB for 122 Squadron & 613 Squadron by chance?

Many Thanks.

Hi,
Saw a recommendation for http://www.oldrafrecords.com/about.php by Robin Barnes on RAF Commands Forum. Includes 43, 54, 56, 79, 141 and 145 Sqns. From WW1 to 1941. Robin Barnes plans to add much more later. A great initiative.

(Please delete this post if this is not appropriate to this thread or if it appears to be a Self-Advertisement)

I have recently uploaded the Nominal Rolls of Indian Air Force Units in the SEcond World War - these have been built using the ORBs from NA, Logbooks, published books etc. The rolls of some units (1,3,4,8,9,10 Squadrons) have a significant number of RAF, RAAF, RNZAF, SAAF personnel that may be of use to many. (Only Squadron listings contain non-Indian personnel, others do not)

The rolls consist of approx 2100 records, and gives Dates of Posting and Location..

They are accessible from this link

Old RAF records has now following squadrons added: 25, 32, 65, 85, 92 and 111.

I have been in contact with Robin and he has ORBs from many other Battle of Britain squadrons which will be added to the site later.

Re: RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
Laurent

Thanks for this, by the way DO NOT just assume from the heading that the file just contains what the title says..

I just downloaded

AIR 54. No. 1 Operational Training Unit Pilots Pool 1940 Aug. - Dec. AIR 54/157


And it contains multiple ORB for various units in SAAF and RAF - Just found ORB for 1433 Flight RAF in it!

You need to download

AIR 54-205 S.A.A.F. Operations Record Books (Microfilm copies) Part 1 Master List Part 2 Index to Master List first and then it will reference what the other filles contain

Laurent Rizzotti 20th December 2011 08:14

Re: RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
Fully agree: I have downloaded AIR 54/191, title No. 7 Squadron 1945 Jan.- Apr..

It contains a part of the ORB of 7 Sqn, but starting from 19 February, not 1 January 1945, and there is also a part of 12 Sqn ORB for 1945 inside!

So check the catalogue, there is more than what is written above.

By the way, there are also parts of ORB of RAF Squadrons, at least according to the catalogue (I have not yet checked it by loading these files):

209 Sqn RAF: August 1942-May 1943 (in AIR 54/156)

230 Sqn RAF: February and March 1943 (in AIR 54/154)

259 Sqn RAF: January-March and May 1943 (in AIR 54/154)

70 OTU: March 1942-April 1943 (in AIR 54/156)

72 OTU: February 1942-May 1943 (in AIR 54/156)

Re: RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
Agree, excellent reference. I have been looking for some of the Danes in SAAF service. Unfortunately without luck.

For instance I was looking for the ORB of 23 Air School for Sep 1943 as I have a Danish casualty here, but the file only take us through to April 1943. Would anyone know where to find the ORB for later months.

Secondly, I was looking for a SAAF trained navigator. Would he have attended any of the air schools?

Re: RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
The last of the three files listed as 60 Sqn June 1945 is actually 61 Squadron Jan - Jun 1945.

Edit - Also, the second of the three files listed as 60 Squadron June 1945 is actually 7 Wing SAAF March-April 1945.

Yes, there are some errors, but overall an excellent move by the folks at Kew.

Many thanks for the heads-up, supremely helpful!

Re: RAF and RAAF ORBs available on the Web (new version)
 
Hi guys! Very nice thread! I am searching for ORB's of the following RAF Squadrons:

30, 33, 37, 80, 84 ,112, 211, 815

during the first months of 1941 (Jan - Apr). The reason is that I have started a survey regarding to the airfield of Paramythia (my hometown) in Northwestern Greece. Unfortunately, to purchase these documents from The National Archives is a rather expensive procedure and for me it is also difficult to travel to Kew and get what i want... So if anyone has got something on these, I appreciate it a lot! Thank you very much for your time and I wish everyone A Happy New Year!

Hi Mimithem

Have you seen AIR WAR over YUGOSAVIA, GREECE & CRETE? It's available in Greek. I bit out of date but a help.

Cheers

Hello mimithem,

Does any aerial photo or other pic of this airfield exists, except from google?Was this airfield used after the british left by the germans?
Thx
