MESSAGE FOR OUR GMAIL MEMBERS
GMail subscribers - We Are Not Sending Spam Emails............
It appears that recent Mass Mailings sent by the Association to our Members who have Gmail addresses are being returned to us as 'Undeliverable'. Research into this matter shows that Gmail is considering our Mass Mailings to be Spam. Clearly this is not the case.
Whilst we suggest that Gmail addressee members should correct this matter via their Spam filters we are considering how we too may overcome this undesirable situation from our end.
Some time in the near future we are hoping to utilise a new system called Mailchimp, for the sending of mass mailings which will resolve this issue.
To enable our viewers to see what the Latest Additions are to the website, without having to scroll through all the various menus, a list of the latest additions will be posted here for a few months. Be advised that content addition to our Archives section is a continuous process and latest additions are not listed here but are coloured blue in the archives themselves.
Articles that are added to the Crewroom may not be posted here since that menu is one of continual addition.
All aircrew are required to complete a personal log book which lists details of their flights.
These are the RAF Form 414 – Pilots Flying Log Book, and the RAF Form 1767 – Aircrew Flying Log Book for other aircrew categories.
It is unusual, particularly after WW2 on a large-crewed aircraft, to find the whole crew listed for a particular flight. Usually it is only the captain's name recorded in the "crew" column on the page.
Regrettably there is limited space available in the 'Spare' column on a log book’s page, and hence, often due to the modesty of the individual, it is rare to find specific reference to incidents that occurred during a particular flight.
For example, we learn from an RFC communiqué, that on 26 October 1915, in combat, an injured 10 Squadron Observer somehow managed to move from the front cockpit of his spinning BE2c into the back in order to take control from his incapacitated pilot. He landed the aircraft and they both survived! It would be interesting to find their log book entries for that particular flight!
This section portrays some of the 10 Sqn History annals which may not have been recorded in Squadron members’ personal log books. It also contains articles that just don't seem to fit in anywhere else.
