Try the Fleet Air Arm Officer's Association of which I am a member. I understand that they have a large library on such matters. Details as follows:

4 St James's Square

Also try the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth, London and the Fleet Air Arm Museum at RNAS Yeovilton, Ilchester, Somerset (I know they have Squadron line books going way back).
Don't know their numbers but I'm sure that FAAOA can help.

Hope this is some use.
