Circus Programme?

Can anyone suggest where I might find a detailed (chronological?) listing of the various circuses (for 1941, in particular), their aims/destinations, and which Squadrons were involved?

Thanks

Steve

Perhaps the easiest source (in that the book is in print and can therefore be ordered from the comfort of your own home, rather than having to trawl through the records in the PRO) is John Foreman's, 'Fighter Command War Diaries', published by Air Research Publications. Volume 2 covers the period from September 1940 to December 1941 and has details on the Circus sorties and targets. Some Circuses are given more information than others, and thus not all list the squadrons involved, but it is a pretty handy reference nonetheless.
