    Default AACU's and No. 26 AACU History

    Does anyone have any information in regard to the AACU's? - their responsibilities, different activities, etc. - in particular I am looking for information in regard to No. 26 AACU during WWII - I'm not finding much through internet searching other that it was formed in Egypt, but I believe redeployed or also based in Palestine.

    Cheers

    AACU s were responsible for providing support to AA units for exercises by target towing, etc. as well as calibration of radars and similar tasks.
