[Underlined] Process Check on Bonded Stores to Inspection Instructions A. 33 and M. 412. “Y” and “YH” Shops. [/underlined]

27/8/42.

[Underlined] Quarantine Stores. [/underlined]

Material entering works is checked to relevant release notes, is inspected and given a batch number. Colour identification to Inspection Instruction M. 412 is satisfactorily carried out.

[Underlined] Raw Material Stores. [/underlined]

An assortment of material batch numbers were tkane [sic] at random and satisfactorily traced to their relevant release notes. Except for isolated cases material is effectively protected from corrosion with oil. It was noted that a large quantity of aluminium alloy sheet to D.T.D. 390 and B.S.S. 5.L.3. is laid flat and not on its edge owing to insufficient number of racks. It was noted also that 12” strip to B.S.S. 5.L.3. which is cut into narrower strips and rolled into “top hat” section in “C” Shop, thereby destroying the colour identification, is not re-identified when returned to Raw Material Stores. With exception of above, colour identification to Inspection Instruction M. 412 is satisfactorily carried out. The “YH” section os [sic] these stores is considered inadequate for the amount of incoming material. Several stacks of material are outside the actual stores.

[Underlined] Finished Part Stores. [/underlined]

A number of different items were selected at will from various bins, each one was found to bear its part number and inspection stamp. In several cases inspection stamps were found to be indiscernible, owing to improper stamping.

[Underlined] Remarks. [/underlined]

There is evidently an improvement in the Quarantine and Raw Material Stores since the last process check dated 8.7.42, but there is still room for further betterment [inserted] / [/inserted] especially in the “YH” Section of the Raw Material Stores.
