Syerston with 61 and 106 Squadron

Good evening!

On 20th December 1942, the Group Order of 5 Group specified per airfield (9 and 44 Sqdn. on Waddington, 49 and 57 Sqdn. on Scampton etc.) which bomb load compositions had to be taken to Duisburg. Thus I was able to compare the desired numbers with the loads actually carried.

The proverbial exception being RAF Syerston, used by 61 and 106 Sqdn. where the bomb load specification has a puzzling handwritten '23A'. The ORB of 106 Sqdn. supplies that info, but the ORB of 61 Sqdn. does not.

Who has copies/access to the Appendices from the ORB of 61 Sqdn. and does it reveal any info about the bomb loads per aircraft?

Many thanks in advance! Best regards, Marcel

Hi again Marcel,

I have these appendices, unfortunately 1942 never has been filed and is missing...

Regards,
Hans
