Points of Interest:

12th April 1943: After almost 18 months as Moreton's satellite Station, RAF Edgehill was handed over to 12 OTU at Chipping Warden.

466 personnel moved to their new satellite Station at RAF Enstone. (Enstone main runway had been built to heavy bomber standards and was longer then Moreton or Edgehill's equivalent)
