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.
