On 23 November 1943, 100 (Bomber Support) Group of RAF Bomber Command was formed. The object was to consolidate the various squadrons and units that had been fighting a secret war of electronics and radar counter-measures, attempting to reduce the losses of the heavy bombers--and their hard pressed crews--in Bomber Command. This secret war involved the use of air and ground radaris, homing and jamming equipment, special radio and navigational aids, and intruding night-fighters to seek our and destroy their opposite numbers.
