RAF Bomber Command intelligence reports (5)

Code: 10431


Rare, original RAF Bomber Command, Intelligence reports for November 1944.

Five individual reports sent from HQ Bomber Command to the Air Ministry, Whitehall, London.

Each report is rubber stamped at the top 'Secret' and signals office, RAF Tuddenham, and dated (some stamps have faded) in a ink stamp block.

Included in these reports are Intelligence narrative, No's 943, 946, 948, 953 and 958 all for various dates over the month of November 1944. They give details of each day's raid (mostly German targets) how many group aircraft took place and what type, the weather conditions, the bombing results, target defences, enemy fighter combats, type of radar and countermeasures involved etc..........

These secret reports are printed on a teleprinter and torn from it, resulting in each report being of a different length, some as long as 20 inches but all are of the same size paper width (8 1/2"). They were collected and a very limited number were then distributed amongst senior officers to gather all intelligence from each operational raid. Very few of these reports have survived.

In a good legible condition, with some creasing and corner folds, tears (see photos).

In need of researching.
