Air Force Records Book

I receive quite a few email requests during the year from people who are researching family and friends who flew in the Royal Air Force, most with the impression that it was XXIV Squadron that the person was attached to.

My usual response has been to direct them to the Public Records Office who have the complete series of WWII information. The book I have included in this post has been recently featured in the Telegraph Books section and may be of some help. I have not read or used it personnaly but it certainly looks like it has all the key facts together in one document to be able to do a good job on tracking down that elusive missing piece of the jigsaw.
