A cerain amount of information appears in Proud and Wingent on the timetables of aircraft on the KLM Dutch East Indies route 1928-1940, but much remains to be recorded. I am trying to assemble this information and I would be glad to hear from any member who can provide copies of any official passenger or aircrew working timetables for these services at any period in their existence.

Len - Have you got Airmails of Siam parts 1 to 5 2nd ed 2003 A4 size by Nils Ramm Ericson Part 3 Airmail services with International carriers 1928-1939 and Part 4International air mail routes and services in the WW2 years are the parts most useful to your research.
He ,I think covers a lot more than Proud with a lot of references. Basically divides services into Dutch, British/ Australian, French and US as well as mentioning Japanese in 1930s. I think reading his work British intelligence underestimated Japanese interests in 1930s.
I think RPS has copies - Leeds Phil Soc has copies in its library if you can`t find anywhere else . I am its Librarian.Best wishes Michael Waugh

Thanks, Michael, for this suggestion. I do indeed have this excellent series of books and can recommend them to anyone collecting Far East airmails because Bangkok seems to have been the airmail crossroads of Asia in the same way as Singapore was for shipping. Len.

All information you seek regarding Timetables during the war for KLM & Imperials can be found in the following books:-

Bridging the continents in wartime, important airmail routes 1939-1945, by Hans E. Aitink and Egbert Hovenkamp

I think also available in Proud's Intercontinental Airmails, Vol 2, Asia and Australiasia.

Good luck.
