    Default The meaning of 'MCS'

    In the book 'Though Without Anger' - Cummings, York I - MW126 crashed on 14 November 1944, with Air Chief Marshal Leigh-Mallory on board.

    The aircrafts unit is given as MCS. Could someone please explain what the MCS stands for?


    Any help wopuld be appreciated

    MCS was the Metropolitan Communication Squadron, stationed at Hendon. They seemed to carry out much the same role as No.24 Squadron, VIP and other personnel positioning flights, I had thought they mainly operated smaller aircraft, having looked into a Proctor of theirs which was lost in the Peak District.
