Re: DEFE3 Files

Nick, Rudi, Steve,

Many thanks for your kind words.

You will find that from 129 onwards I have changed tack slightly and copied the text from the DEFE file rather than just summarise it. This coupled with an increase in Luftwaffe information in the latter files has meant more time spent on each one.

While the pdfs are fairly "open" for copying etc this all does start with a text file - if anyone's interested in having these then PM me and I will distribute via a file sharing site.

The process would have been a lot easier if the files could be read with OCR software. Unfortunately the quality of the originals varies so much that I have found this impossible to achieve.

If anyone fancies picking a file and processing it in the same way as I have then let me know and I will sent them the template for the document.

All the best
