HAA War Diaries

These transcripts of Heavy Anti-Aircraft (HAA) regimental and battery war diaries. Some are partial, focussing on the times I'm interested in. They include a selection (not complete) of the operational orders in the original file.

206 Battery Engagement Reports, September 1940
These are a collection of blue forms included with WO 166/2490, the intention evidently being to capture AA engagement records in a standard format for later analysis. I've tabulated the results and taken the liberty of normalising descriptions where possible, but the results from AORG's perspective still leave something to be desired. Rushed, tired subalterns clearly didn't see the point in what they were being asked to do.
