Further developments in the Air Force in November 1941
Another change to accommodate the conditions expected in the Crusader offensive was to split the fighter wings into smaller "flying wings", with two squadrons per wing. The intent was to put a wing onto a single airfield. There would be three of these airfields connected to the main headquarters for the original, large wing organization. In addition to the new organization, the Desert Air Force started training to learn "the latest tactics" as used back in Britain. This is based on the account in Vol.III of the Official History.
