Fighter Command/ADGB Wing Leaders


Following the Battle of Britain it was decided to group squadrons of Fighter Command into Wings, each Wing being centred on a Sector station, with each Wing's squadrons being based at the Sector station and its allocated satellite stations.  The CO of each Wing was effectively the station commander of the relevant Sector station but each was allocated a Wing Leader of Wing Commander rank to lead the Wings in action.  Many of these Sector Wings were transferred to the 2nd Tactical Air Force in 1943 and redesignated as numbered Airfields (later still reverting to the title Wing)
