Re: RAF Abbreviations

Hi Max,

Thanks for your input. I think we now have a good idea on the meaning of both abbreviations.

I must say, for me it's a fascinating document. It's a great insight into the day to day activities of early Bomber Command.
Learning all the time :)

Cheers,
Wayne.

Still need to find out the meaning of S.O.R.D.O. but I won't loose any sleep over it :lol:

Thanks again
Wayne.

Example; 18:30 hrs. S.O.O. advised by 3 Group Bomber Command operating tonight. 19:40 hrs. S.O.R.D.O. passed to 3 Gro...

All I have is;
Pilot, FO A. Atkinson (No 153846)
Bomb aimer, FO W. S. Long (No 165358)
Wireless operator, FO H. Ashton (No 172733)

I'm sure Bruno will be along shortly.

Re: A subdued Christmas here.

Guy,

Sorry to hear about your sad losses :(

Things do get better, slowly, and as Steve and John said, family and friends do help.

All the best wishes for 2014, and as we say here in NZ, Kia Kaha. (Stay Strong)

Wayne.
