You wrote:

It is not possible to identify information within the scope of your request by searching for al RAF
equipment containing radioactive material. Please could you be more specific about the exact
items you are referring to. Naming specific geographical locations would also help, for example
an individual RAF station. Additional y, if you could limit your request to a specific timeframe
that may also help.

If you could clarify your request further we can then investigate to see if the information
requested is held.

My request refined:

I am requesting information under the FoIA specifically any radioactive equipment [Inc X-Ray equipment] unaccounted for that may have gone missing or irretrievable from 1st February 1960 to 1st March 1961 in the *vicinity* of the former RAF station at Gan in the Maldives
