These [preparation] courses took an average of eight months from enlistment until individuals were ready for attachment to the Royal Air Force." (p.107) "Although anxious to meet Australia's wishes, the Air Ministry replied that it was unlikely that all RAAF bomber squadrons could be formed ... (p.113), John Herington, 'Air War Against Germany and Italy, 1939-1943' (1954). The quotations from the first cited work come from the official account of the earlier Australian participation in Bomber Command, Royal Air Force, from 1941 to 1943.
