    Default Info Request: DPS and DGMS RAF 1940

    Hello! I'm trying to find out the names of the DPS (director of personnel services) and DGMS (director-general medical services) for the RAF in 1940. Have been able to locate the DGMS from 1941 (Sir Harold Whittingham) but nothing earlier.

    Any help is much appreciated, thank you.

    Hi Malcolm, thanks for the response and correction! Would you happen to know who the S.7(g) was for the same period?

    Hi Ross

    Except for D-Gs, Directors and Deputy Directors the AFL doesn't give individual appointments, just lists officer by rank
