    Default D.S.F.I.U. at RAF Hurn?

    Between February and October 1942 a Polish pilot (an officer) was posted to a unit which in some documents is labelled simply as "RAF Hurn", and in others as "D.S.F.I.U.".
    Types flown by him during that period included: Tiger Moth, Magister, Mentor, Hurricane I and II, Spitfire I and V, Defiant, Beaufighter I, II and VI, Havoc, Boston, Mosquito, Hudson V and VI, Anson, Wellington I, II, III and IV, and his total flying time during that period was 255 hrs.
    This looks like some sort of a maintenance/ferry unit or an experimental establishment. Can anyone identify it?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Voytech,

    FIU normaly stands for "Fighter Interception Unit" but I have no idea what means the DS prefix...
