Dear Air-DRes Sec-ParliBusiness (MULTIUSER),

I was unaware that so many missiles/parts of missiles had gone missing over the years in the RAF, so to make the search easier can I ask the same question above in the time frame February 1st 1960 to March 1st 1961

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

John Cooper

Further to the above you ask:

*Also which types of missiles, or parts of missiles, are you
referring to as this may narrow down the request further if you could be more specific?*

The short answer to your question is 'I do not know' but by narrowing the subject matter down to the dates from February 1st 1960 to March 1st 1961 and what missiles the RAF held in that time span including ICBM, Air to Air, Ground to Air, or Air to ground or any other missile the MoD/Air Ministry had on trials

Thank you
Yours sincerely
