    I have not read all the above yet, it is too nice a day to stay indoors, but it has already answered some questions on my list. Of course it has raised more questions.

    Thank you.

  9. This looks like a great (though dated) series of publications. Is there a list of volumes making up this series. My Internet searching didn't yield much. Thanks.

    Search results: "WO 277" | The National Archives - I don’t know if this is all of them.
     
  12. I have download each JPG and combined them into 4 separate PDF files for my personal use. I could upload them, but not sure whether I legally can, or if so where would anyone suggest. I also do not want to take away from the effort of morrisc8. If there is more coming I would be happy to oblige and convert more.

    It's too bad you couldn't scan the balance of the books you started and do the job for your UK Archives. :)
    Great job and interesting reading. Thank you.
