9 FTS December 1940-April 1941

I know 9 FTS was at Cranwell and at Hullavington but when did it move from one to the other?

Also can anyone confirm the aircraft flown at 9 FTS from December 1940-April 1941. I assume Miles Master I, but sources indicate both Tiger Moths and Harvards.

regards

Keith
