Re: Using Ultra to research the Luftwaffe

Hi Steve,
A little update: I spoke with an 'Intelligence Expert' on the Kew staff just a couple of weeks ago and although there is support for digitising HW5, it is still not near the top of the list.

One of the features of the HW5 series is that it includes untranslated intercepted messages which makes it tricky to compile a meaningful index. This may affect their decision.

Chris, Nick Beale has given you good advice. If I may do the same, it is simply this: be as specific as you can about what you want. Name the dates first, and then any operations, units or the locations. If anyone on the forum recognises these perhaps you will get your help. Good luck!

Bruce
