 We will endeavour to reply within 7 days to genuine requests or comments.  However due to the increasing numbers of non-Association viewers seeking Family History Research Advice, we regret that the rules in the "Research Help" section will be strictly applied.  We have no research facilities ourselves.

Logging-In to the website:

Some members occasionally advise us that they cannot login.  This invariably means that they have lost or forgotten their usernames or passwords and may also point to the fact that they may have changed their email address without notifying us.

Please be aware that we do not carry out any 'Where are they now?'  research or tracing of old friends.   However if  you wish to make use of our limited  'Research Help'  facility, send your enquiry to the above address.  You must be prepared to have your email address posted in the open part of the website.  Any such post will  be kept on the page for about a year, due to the changing nature of email addresses.

Please limit any such enquiries, which must contain a reference to RAF 10 Squadron, to a maximum of 100 words.  The Association will not enter into any  correspondence as a result of such enquiries.

A short 15 - 20 minute service by the Memorial is usually followed by coffee and bickies on the nearby farm. 

We are grateful to Mr John Rowbottom, owner of Melrose Farm, for his continued support of the 10 Squadron Association, for his care and maintenace of the Memorial and for allowing us to hold our Annual Remembrance Service here.

FOLLOW THIS ROUTE  INSTEAD  (below)

From the A64 York ring road take the exit for the A1079 signed for Beverley & Hull.  At 9.3 miles from the A64, opposite Barmby Moor Industrial Estate, take a right turn at the new roundabout, signed to Melbourne & Allerthorpe. (Road sign points to Pocklington Gliding Club to the left.)  There is a Service Area here where toilet facilities are available.

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.
