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

(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.

Regards,
Peter

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

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?

Regards

Mikkel
