    Hi Alan

    Take a look too at rafweb.org/Bases

    That says:

    Formed: 15/3/1943.
    Comprised: Swinderby, Winthorpe, Wigsley and Syerston (until 30/10*/44).
    Transferred to 7 (Training) Group, 30/11/44.

    Hope this helps

    Ian

    * I wonder if that is a typo for 30/11/44? Or perhaps even vice versa with 30/11?
