    Default Units on Heston Station Sep/Oct 1941?

    My grandfather was on Course No. 5 (Spitfires) at 61 OTU during September and October 1941. During this period 61 OTU was based at Heston Station.

    I would be interested to know what other flying units (if any) may have been using the station at the same time.

    According to Action Stations Vol.8 the only other unit there at the time appears to be 1422 Flt. (Air Target Illumination Unit) - turbinlites.

    Thanks again John. You've helped fill a couple of gaps in my grandfather's history.
