No 22 Army Coop Group May 1940

Still struggeling to get a clear view on the No. 22 (Army Cooperation) Group in May 1940. What I have is:

No. 2, 13, 16 and 26 Sqn had moved to France with the Air Component
No 4 Sqn at Wimborne ready to move at outbreak of campaign
Remaining squadrons No. 225, 613 and 614, all based at Odiham equipped with Lysanders.
Is this correct or were there more squadrons in this group?

Who was the Squadron Leader of No 225 Sqn?

Pieter

Re: No 22 Army Coop Group May 1940

A bit of info - not much:

Although it received Lysanders in April 1940 613 Sqn was still equipped with some Hawker Hectors ie K8116 coded ZR-K in May 1940 and later used six of them to attack German troops near Calais, for the loss of two.

Lastly the Special Duty Flight, at RAF Christrchurch, engaged in AI, ASV and IFF radar trials came under the Command of 22 (Army Co-operation) Group on 13th May 1940 till 1st Dec 1940. Despite being in 22 Group it was left to continue its work in support of the Telecommunications Research Establishment based at Worth Matravers, Dorset.
