    Default 1 RAF Bomber Group Commanders...

    Hello!
    Would you , please, let me know, who were the 1 RAF Bomber Group Commanders?
    I found that list on www. rafcommand.com, but I would like to be asured that it is correct.

    27 Jun 1940 A/Cdre J J Breen
    27 Nov 1940 AVM R D Oxland
    24 Feb 1943 AVM E A B Rice
    12 Feb 1945 AVM R S Blucke

    I met the info that AVM Saundby may have acted as A.O.C. of 1 Bomber Group in early 1941...
    May it be true?

    Regards to everybody!

    Sorry for replying to my own previous message...
    I found the infromation that AVM Saundby was SASO in HQ Bomber Command in between 1940 - 1943 so he coulnd`t command 1 Bomber Group at the same time ...

    So the puzzle is partially solved...
    By the way, what the abbreviation SASO stands for?
