Project ORB – May 1940

My continuing thanks to Brian for his sterling single handed efforts with Operational Record Book for 1940 – May 1940 has now been added to the ‘Squadron Records’ section of the blog.

Included in Brian’s email were a couple of ‘transcribers notes’ of interest:

“May 17th. Weather report – Cloud section has the only examples I have seen in the ORBs were the ampersand is used instead of “at”.”

“May 21st. Formation of new flight. It would seem that although the New Zealand flight took over the 75 number plate in April 1940 it still operated as a flight until this date when it split into “A” and “B” flights and officially became a Squadron. Presumably following an expansion in the number of aircraft and personnel.”
