REPAIRING aircraft for Imperial Airways, led, at the beginning of the war, to the setting up of a repair organization with its headquarters at Rochester. All the work carried out was category ‘AC’ (repairable on site by contractors' party), except later when the Windermere factory and Short & Harland, Belfast, started to deal with category ‘B’ (repairable by contractor at the firm). At Windermere work was mainly large modifications or major overhauls. Short & Harland organized a separate repair department which dealt with all types of aircraft in Northern Ireland.
