National Archives

On 26th & 27th February 2019 we are making our annual pilgrimage to the National Archives in London. Our primary interest on this trip are the Operations Record Books of a number of RAF establishments and records of local air raids:

  • RAF Northstead GCI station
  • Ottercops Moss Chain Home radar station
  • RAF Kenton/Blakelaw
  • RAF Longbenton
  • Bomb census returns
  • Bomb damage reports
  • Operations Record Books for various RAF Squadrons
  • Light and Heavy Anti Aircraft battalion War Diaries

These records, among others we find time to copy, will form the basis of many posts going forward.

Such a pity for us Northerners the archives are so far away.
