Hi Dennis,

thanks for posting these...I always wondered what a SALU report contained. Perhaps revealing is the stamp on the title page of the SALU report (DSCF3047), stating "SPECIAL NOTE. This document is based on the evidence available at War Station (Station X). It does not necessarily represent the views of the Ministries, or any one of them."

W/C John Stubbington, in his his excellent book, 'Bletchley Park Air Section. Signals Intelligence Support to RAF Bomber Command' (Minerva Associates, 2007), details the problems that existed between Air Intelligence in London and the Air Section at Bletchley over the analysis of raw data. The crux of the issue was that A.I. did not think it was the job of the Air Section to analyse data and produce reports, believing instead that this was solely their own preserve. The disclaimer quoted above highlights this difference of opinion...
