Didn't realise it was checked out, should be ok now, I didn't edit it, it opens the page in edit mode for me some times.

Hi Gary,
I have now added the rest of the 120 Squadron records for 1942. I have started to link them to the Squadron details page. You have the 120 Squad index page checked out so I cant update the links.

If you want it done in a different way please feel free to change.

I will post more transcriptions when I have done them.

regards

Brian
