    Default ADGB - Fighter Command

    Hello,

    According to my infos, 38 Group has been transfered from Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force to the Air Defence of Great Britain (ADGB) on the 10th of November 1944.
    According to what I read: Fighter Command had been recreated on 1st October 1944.
    So was there a link between ADGB and Fighter Command? Was ADGB a part of Fighter Command?
    Thanks in advance for all your help.
    Regards.

    "On the formation of the Allied Expeditionary Air Force in November 1943, Fighter Command was renamed Air Defence of Great Britain Command, but reverted to the Fighter Command title in October 1944."
