    Default 1 Squadron Detachment November 1940

    Is there a No 1 Squadron expert who could tell me if they had sent a detachment to Scotland/ 13 Group during November 1940 please? I checked the ORB at Kew and it gives their location as RAF Wittering. I ask because in the 13 Group ORB it states twice that aircraft from 1 Squadron were sent to intercept Glasgow raiders on 28/29 November 1940.

    Hi,
    I suspect that they are referring to No 1 (RCAF) squadron which was based at Prestwick during November 1940.

    That is indeed the one - thank you v much Gerry. I didn't realise there might be two squadrons both No 1 as the ORB only says No 1 Squadron.
    Many Thanks again
