I am trying to sort out who did what, where, and when for the RAF in the Scilly Islands. I have limited info on the (fixed wing) frightener of an airfield at St Mary's. Willis/Holliss say it was a satellite airfield in 10 Group - satellite of where? Additionally, Coastal Command are stated as using the Scillies as a Foward Operating Base. Does anyone have any details. If there was a flying boat operating base then there was, most likely, an MCU to provide servicing support? Also, was there an Air Sea Rescue Unit based there?
Tks in antic for any info
