During 1942 a Central Flying Control (CFC) was established at HQ Bomber Command, its main function being 'the diversion of aircraft which could not return to their own base' (AP 1134). One of the CFC's main considerations was the weather (hence my interest), and I'm trying to determine the month the CFC was established. It was after December 1941 and before May 1942 - I could get away with 'early 1942', but if possible would like to be more precise.

AP1134 is a little vague about this, and although I've identified a number of NA files that would provide the answer, it's not sensible to travel 100 miles for this one bit of information.

Just wondering if anyone has any idea from their own researches.
