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.
