Hi Gents,
Iím unable to find those documents and particularly.
Does someone has any idea where they can be located ?
I have tried Imperial War Museum and Devonport Naval Heritage Centre without success.
Period runs from August 15th and August 30th 1944.
Very hard also to find deck logs of Emperor and PursuerÖ
Thanks in advance
Best regards
Pierre

All such records are held by the National Archives.
For log See:
Ships log HMS Emperor   ADM 53/119347
https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1583654
Ships log HMS Pursuer  ADM 53/120287
https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1584593

For  Op Dragoon there are several files, although whether they contain pilots reports I would not know
see:

Thank you very much ! :)
Do you think itís possible to order digitized copies just concerning the period (August 15th to 30th) ?

Digitised copies of files are usually no problem - I am not sure whether the National Archives will do a selection, but you can always ask and see what they say...

Incidentally, squadron diaries are also held by the National Archives
