Abstract

THE policy and organization of the Avro Repair Group was based upon intelligent anticipation—anticipation of the many and varied types of damage that might be expectedl anticipation of quantities, and anticipation of facilities to deal with all contingencies. The central depot at Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln, developed from an ex‐1914–18 war hangar to an establishment employing nearly 3,000 men and forming the hub of an organization that embraced many stations and subcontractors' works, civilian out‐working parties, of A. V. Roe personnel, effected a high proportion of major repairs to Lancaster, York and Anson aircraft; such parties were stationed all over the British Isles and were supplemented by a fleet of some seventy mobile workshops.
