Example text

Appendix D tells us that FEA stands for Far East Air Force. Whoops! That sure doesn’t fit South Carolina or Indiana. A trip back to the Station Codes is called for. And there we find Andersen AFB. We have run afoul of a rather rare spelling error on the IARC. The FEA is followed by 0514RCNSQ, identifying the 514th Reconnaissance Squadron. So now we know that the 514th Reconnaissance Squadron, somewhere in the Far East, is involved in something. But what? (ANDERSO)(FEA0514RCNSQ)GMMTOG4370514RC RB29ACC * 7437 8 30 50 61651 The next entry — Gain of Loss Code — Should tell us something in this regard.

The next columnar input, REPORTING DATE is missing and the last column gives the last five digits of the serial number of the next batch input. Let us return to the Gain Code comments; I indicated that there was something to add to the Gain Code GM discussion. ” There is some insider knowledge available for the sake of instruction, so lets take that definition piece-by-piece, starting with the word “re-designation” in the Gain Code description. The 514th was re-designated the 514th Reconnaissance Squadron (Very Long Range) Weather on 15 October 1947 and Activated on the same day.

The next column after Month and Day is STATION NO. A check with Appendix L, Numeric Station Codes confirms that 8340 is Hobbs, the receiving Station. The following “10” is a little baffling, and I can only conjecture that it is an administrative entry within the DCA column. The same reasoning applies to the following 4258 — it is a part of administrative data under the SCU column heading. The “4258” appears to also be a Station Code Number, in this case Marianna Field in Florida. A glance upward on the IARC revealed that the previous Station for 41-39441 was Marianna Florida.
