I'm trying to confirm the dates that the verious Fighter Sectors operated in Scotland (or in areas that included parts of Scotland). From the information I have, drawn partly from Operations Record Books at Kew and partly from secondary sources such as Action Stations 7 by David J Smith, my understanding is that the following sectors operated during the periods indicated. Can anyone confirm these details, or correct any information that is incorrect? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fighter Sector Headquarters:

  • Sumburgh (January 1941 - January 1942)
  • Lerwick (January 1942 - August 1945)
  • Kirkwall (October 1940 - March 1946)
  • Wick (December 1939 - October 1940)
  • Tain (September 1941 - February 1943)
  • Peterhead (July 1941 - August 1945)
  • Dyce (January 1940 - July 1941)
  • Turnhouse (September 1939 - April 1946)
  • Ayr (April 1941 - May 1943)
  • Ouston (March 1941 - July 1943)
  • Usworth (September 1939 - March 1941)
