TheGenealogist releases Battle of Britain RAF Operations Record Books

To mark the 80th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Britain (10 July 1940 - 31 October 1940)  TheGenealogist is releasing over 2 million new RAF records. These records not only cover this important fight for Britain’s survival but also encompass all of the Second World War period for a number of squadrons. This release brings the total Operations Record Books (ORBs) records to 3.7 million, part of TheGenealogist’s extensive Military records collection.

The ORBs are fully searchable by name, aircraft, location and many other fields. Find out more in TheGenealogist's extensive blog post here.

Similar records (Operations Record Books) are available for RCAF squadrons for the Second World War, these are digitized and online at Heritage. Perhaps Ancestry or Find My Past could add these, indexed, to their Canadian databases. For research on an individual in the RCAF, the ORBs are essential and can be far more informative than a service record. Just a suggestion.
