Servicing Echelons


Fighter Command

The Servicing Arrangements at the Outbreak of War*

In tracing the development of aircraft servicing in Fighter Command, the essential need for a change in policy dates back to the expansion of the Royal Air Force in the period from 1936 to 1939. Prior to this period the squadrons in Fighter Command were operating on a servicing system whereby each Flight was a self-contained unit in a flying squadron that is, each Flight had a quota of Groups I and II tradesmen who were responsible for all inspection and repair work on aircraft up to the 'write-off' category.  Such a system functioned satisfactorily under normal conditions, but soon displayed faults when subjected the increased flying intensity which came with expansion.  In addition, aircraft were becoming more complex and the ratio of highly skilled work to duties of a routine nature increased considerably.  An outstanding defect was that aircraft of one Flight in a squadron could be awaiting attention while unemployed man-power was available in other Flights.  To eliminate this fault it was decided to adopt the squadron as the unit for servicing purposes and divide tasks into two phases

(a) Handling of aircraft, routine inspections and repairs of a minor nature.

(b) Major repair work and inspections not dealt with by the handling parties.

To meet this phasing squadrons were reorganised to consist of two flying Flights manned with Group II tradesmen and adequate supervision, and a third Flight for purely servicing purposes manned with Group I tradesmen. This Flight undertook all major inspections and repair work. In effect the system recognised that the servicing of aircraft within a squadron was an important task and merited the formation of a Flight to undertake the work.

Development during the War

The system mentioned above remained in force during the first year of the war but operations within that period and particularly while the Battle of Britain was in progress showed that the mobility of squadrons was hampered by the static servicing organisation.  As the tempo of the battle was intensified, squadrons had to be moved at increasingly frequent intervals.  The moves commenced with complete squadrons. This was followed by a reduction to a move of aircraft, pilots and some 70 personnel, then by a further reduction in which only the pilots, aircraft and a maximum of 32 maintenance personnel, all travelling by air, were concerned, and in exceptional cases only the pilots and aeroplanes moved. This resulted in squadrons becoming detached to a greater or lesser extent from their personnel, and in some cases a squadron and its personnel became distributed over at least three different stations.

A squadron on moving had to leave its unserviceable aircraft, and personnel repair them.  There was considerable difficulty in arranging whether these aircraft, when serviceable, should follow their squadrons and whether new pilots and new aircraft should be posted to the original base or to the station from which the squadron was operating.  The personnel left behind were 'nobody's children' and their position, and sometimes their work, was unsatisfactory.  These facts were brought to notice by the Air Officer Commanding No 12 Group (Air Vice-Marshal T. Leigh-Mallory) who, in a letter to Headquarters, Fighter Command dated 11 December 1940, said that as the result of the many difficulties experienced during reinforcing and relieving movements of squadrons within the Command during the past seven months he had given careful consideration to the possibility of so reducing the composition of fighter squadrons as to increase their mobility, while at the same time removing the difficulties arising from the transport of large ground parties and redundant bulky equipment from station to station.  Two schemes, he wrote, had been considered -

'A' - The maximum mobility of a squadron would be obtained by reducing the unit to an operational minimum of personnel, aircraft and equipment, i.e. pilots, plus an essential skeleton administrative staff, accompanied by aircraft and any special equipment which was not common to most types. This would result in the Station Headquarters becoming a large unit which would supply all the needs of the squadrons on the station and be responsible not only for housing, feeding and defending all personnel on the station but would also cater for every aspect of aircraft maintenance.

'B' - A compromise between scheme 'A' and the existing scheme, in that a larger number of personnel than in scheme 'A' would be retained in the squadron with a view to fostering the squadron spirit. The main features of scheme 'B ' were -

(i) The combination of squadron servicing parties to form a station servicing party to undertake the major items of squadron maintenance, the squadrons retaining only sufficient personnel to perform minor inspections and handling of aircraft.

(ii) The holding of ground equipment on station charge.

After discussion it was decided that Scheme 'A,' although attractive in principle, was not acceptable.  The main objection was that it would destroy the 'body' of the squadron owing to the absence of the squadron fighting spirit which depended not only on the skill and morale of the pilots but also on the efficiency and keenness of the ground staff.  It was recommended that Scheme 'B' be adopted with modifications and the essentials of the final proposals were as follows

(a) That a station maintenance unit be formed.

(b) That the bulk of the Group I tradesmen held by squadrons should be transferred to the station maintenance unit.

(c) That all ground equipment should be held on the charge of the station maintenance unit, and that special equipment peculiar to certain types be issued to squadrons by the station maintenance unit as required.

(d) That all technical maintenance, other than daily inspections and minor adjustments, should be undertaken by the station maintenance unit.

(e) That a percentage of the station defence personnel should be trained in the duties of refuelling and rearming aircraft.

The advantages of this reorganisation were said to be -

(a) The mobility for purposes of permanent or semi-permanent moves would be assisted by the consequent reduction of the bulk of the squadron.

(b) Problems of rapid reinforcement would be eased by the training of the ground defence personnel in refuelling and rearming duties, and by the fact that the station maintenance unit existed for the benefit of any unit which might arrive on the station.

(c) It would relieve the squadron commander of the major problems of aircraft maintenance and allow him to devote more time to operational matters.

(d) The formation of a station maintenance unit would pool the skilled personnel on a station, and to some extent avert the troubles resulting from a lower standard of training and experience, which was now being felt, by enabling the more reliable men to be employed to their full capacity.

(e) An economy in ground equipment and tools would be effected by more continuous use of these items.

Additional suggestions to improve the scheme were -

(a) That the size of the flight mechanics' tool kits could be reduced to a very small number of tools which could be carried by the airman in a pouch or similar container.

(b) That a suitable proportion of personnel and equipment held by the station maintenance unit should be earmarked to form a mobile unit when required, i.e. to accompany a squadron moving to a base possessing no maintenance facilities.

The scheme was discussed at a conference held on 17 January 1941 at Headquarters, Fighter Command which was attended by all the Fighter Group Commanders and the Director of Organisation from the Air Ministry.  It was agreed that scheme 'B' should be adopted throughout the Command subject the following modifications -

(a) The squadron establishments should be cut to the bone and the bulk of the maintenance personnel transferred to the station maintenance party.

(b) The internal structure of the station maintenance party should be organised in such a way that it could throw off echelons. One of these echelons would be attached to each squadron in residence at the parent station or at a satellite.  These echelons when attached to a squadron would, of course, come under the squadron commander and station engineer officer.  Each echelon would have the minimum normally necessary for the type of work done by the squadron, being reinforced temporarily, if required, by the loan of additional personnel from the top hamper of the station maintenance party.

c) The squadron engineer officer would remain in the squadron and not be reposted to the station maintenance party.

(d) Night flying and foreign squadrons should be organised on the same lines although, in fact, night-flying squadrons would rarely move.  As regards foreign squadrons, steps were to be taken to ensure, as far as possible, that they were changed over with others of the same nationality, e.g. a Polish squadron would relieve a Polish squadron."

This above seems to have become effective on 14 November 1941, although the initial plans to create 'Station Maintenance Units' seems to have been modified in practice with the servicing elements of Fighter Command squadrons being given separate identities a numbered Servicing Echelons, initially being numbered from 3001 to 3078, except those formed from the servicing element of Auxiliary Air Force squadrons which retained the number of their parent squadron.  Despite what had originally been proposed these Servicing Echelons usually accompanied the parent squadron when the latter moved to a different station.  However, when the parent squadron exchanged aircraft and bases with another squadron. the Servicing Echelon already in situ might remain where it was and continue servicing the same aircraft.  The formation of ADGB and 2nd Tactical Air Force brought further changes to this system, which described in the appropriate section below.
