[Underlined] Process Check on Assemblies and Sub-Assemblies . . . B Shop . . . 18. 2. 43. [/underlined]

Assemblies and Sub-Assemblies in this shop are chiefly items required or salvaged to Approved Schemes. The following were picked at random and examined.

Lancaster 1302443 – Countershaft Cover.
Hampden 52115/H2– Undercarriage Fairing.
Hampden 52112/H3– Rear Cowling.
Hampden 5238B – Tank Door.

They were checked to drawing and schedule, examined for workmanship and defective material, and found correct. All bore a W.I.D. inspection stamp, but the “R” or “S” stamp, signifying repair or salvage was not present on all repaired or salvaged items. This was brought to the notice of inspector concerned who promised to see that they would be so stamped in future.

All repairs were effectively carried out to Approved Schemes, and all details bore evidence of previous inspection.

Salvaged or repaired sub-assemblies are not checked to drawings for dimensions where there has been no serious damage.

All items are cleaned and sprayed internally with P.O.V. where necessary.

Process as viewed is considered satisfactory.
