RAF Movement Order, 1941

RAF Movement Order, 1941

This example of an RAF Movement Order saw F/O Claydon moved from RAF Silloth on the north coast of Cumberland to Nutts Corner, Northern Ireland. The route was set out in detail as far at Belfast, going via Carlisle, then Stranraer on the Scottish coast by rail, boat across to Larne and then train to Belfast. After that it was up to the R.T.O. at Belfast Railway Station to arrange the rest of the route.

Many thanks to Peter Claydon for sending us these pictures, which belonged to his uncle, C.W.J. Claydon, who spent much of the war serving as a medical officer with No.120 Squadron at Ballykelly, Northern Ireland.
