TheGenealogist has released over 4.2 million transcripts for its RAF Operations Record Books (ORBs), fully searchable by name, rank, aircraft, squadron, and date.

The records cover the years 1911-1963 and the release makes this the largest collection of searchable AIR 27 records.

The Operation Record Books on TheGenealogist include not only the journal-like day to day entries recorded on Form 540, in which you can find RAF personnel mentioned, but also all of the appendices that go along with these documents, giving many statistical details as well as 'Secret Orders'.

Mark Bayley, Head of Content at TheGenealogist, said: ‘We are delighted to be releasing such a large number of AIR 27 ORBs, making TheGenealogist the most comprehensive site for AIR 27 records online.'
