Re: Air Defence of Great Britain (ADGB)
 
Good morning all,

Does anyone know the exact date in 1932 that the following RAF organisation 'stood up' to recieve Command status please?

The Air Defence of Great Britain (ADGB) was a RAF command comprising substantial army and RAF elements responsible for the air defence of the British Isles. It lasted from 1925, following recommendations that the RAF take control of homeland air defence, until 1936 when it became RAF Fighter Command.

Thanks

Danny

According to Ken Delve it was set up on 1/1/25 and renamed Fighter Command on 13/7/36. The title was reintroduced in 1943 when the 2TAF was established.
