Trying to get hold of the war diary for 104 Squadron during the First World War - the National Archives have it but haven't had a reply asking for the estimate of a digital copy of it. Does anyone already have it, or any other information on 104 Squadron in WW1?

Formed at Wyton as a light bomber unit on 4 September 1917 equipped with DH9s, it soon moved to Andover from where it transferred to France in May 1918.  As part of the Independent Force, the squadron was involved in attacks against industrial targets in the Saar region of Germany.  Just before the Armistice, the squadron was in the process of converting to the DH10, but the end of the war put pay to this and in February 1919, it returned to Turnhouse and disbanded at Crail on 31 June 1919.
 
I assume that you are aware of/have :
 
Independent Force : The War Diary of the Daylight Squadrons of the Independent Air Force June - November 1918, by Keith Rennles (Grub Street).
 
& the IWM reprints of the official 'Results of Air Raids on Germany carried out by the 8th Brigade and the Independent Force' & 'Results of Raids on Germany carried out by British Aircraft' ?
