Came across this by chance and thought someone might find it of use. Afraid I didn't have time to go through it thoroughly but I'm sure someone can make use of it.

Good find. Out of interest, was it a random find? There is a lot on the site but I don't think it is catalogued that well yet. The Squadron and Group reels have been indexed by someone as I found a list online. Good for UK based ORBs and especially 6 Group ORB.

Now, I wonder if they have any range plans :)

Some very interesting records, given the number of frames on each reel, it will take a lot of sifting through should keep me busy!

They were flying Tiger Moths and Cornell’s would it be normal to introduce practice bombing at this stage in training?

Practice bombing was carried out at FTS/SFTS early in the war in the UK but moved to OTUs at some point. I assume this would apply to SFTS in Canada and Australia as well.
