    Royton,

    I don't know who the air commodore was but Keith Park was AOC at the time, not Lloyd.

    Many thanks quite correct, Hugh Pugh Lloyd was AOC when the announcement was made the previous April.

    Hi Royton

    The AOA in Malta from 8 Aug 1941 was Act A/Cdre M L Taylor and the SASO was Act A/Cdre W A B Bowen-Buscarlet, si I suspect it was one of these two. At this stage the AOA was usually the senior post and tended to act as Dep AOC when required.
