    Hello folks

    I have been after these for a while, would anyone have the squadron orb's for RAF Nutts Corner or RAF Aldergrove please that you would not mind sharing. Or even anyone who could access them in the archives, it can be very costly using the national archives own researchers. For around 6 pages of one orb it cost the best parts of nearly £40 recently, shocking stuff.

    Hope you can help

    Many thanks

    Will

    Will, is it the station ORBs or the Squadrons ORBs that were stationed there? If it helps I have the ORB for 120 Squadron

    Hi Peter

    I was looking for the station orbs, but the 120 squadron orb would certainly be useful as i planned to go after those next. We where in touch around ten years ago relating to a Lib of 120 sqdn that crashed just off the Belfast Road, at Nutts Corner, i will try and make enquiries next week and see who owns the land it crashed on, see if i can get a few pics.

    Many thanks
