    Hi Alain

    If you are referring to No 1 ARU, this was No 1 Aircraft Reception Unit.

    I was formed at Handorf on 2 Oct 1945 but was redesignated No 3 ARU on 28 Nov 1945. It reformed on the same day when No 1 Aircraft Acceptance Unit was redesignated at Coxyde and disbanded on being absorbed into No 2 ARU on 30 Apr 1946.

    Unfortunately the Confidential Air Force Lists only list the units allocated to the BAFO Groups not the locations of the units.

    Alain,

    Were you referring here to the crash of Spitfire MV316 with F/O Keith Bodden?
