    Default Re: RAF Stores Prefixes - 5D/XXX etc.

    Nice one Paul - last time I added anything new to the list was 2006! Much appreciated.

    Can I be cheeky and ask where you sourced the list or is it a compiliation from various sources?

    Default Re: RAF Stores Prefixes - 5D/XXX etc.

    It's a compilation from a wide variety of sources, most of which I've sadly forgotten.
    I'll update it in the next few days where possible, I have a sheaf of additional subsections still to enter.
    The complete list is contained in AP1086, presumably there are copies of this Air Publication in the RAFM archive at least.

    All the best,
    PB
