    Default FS HQ RAF Biggin Hill 1945?

    Does anyone know what 'FS HQ' stands for please? The airman I am looking at arrived there on 27 Jun 1945. Unfortunately I do not know what trade he was at this time.

    Rgds and thanks

    Jonny, Hi,
    If I read rafweb aright then by Jun 45 Biggin Hill was far less a Fighter intensive Station, and more a Transport/Comms hub into Europe.
    Servicing all these various Transport/Comms a/c flying to/from all sorts of strange locations in Europe would require some sort of servicing co-ordination? This would be perfomed by the Field Servicing HQ? (FS HQ?)
    OK - grasping at straws, but until someone comes up with a better idea (or even the REAL decode of that acronym) "je reste ma valise"!!

    Well, it is a 100% better guess than I could come up with Peter. Very many thanks for the reply.
