In 1944, the Air Officer Commanding No. 100 Group, the then Air Commodore Edward Barker Addison, said this of the activities of his unique command:

“No less valuable, however, have been the results obtained by those units, whose job it is to confound our enemies or to probe into his technical secrets. Although not so spectacular, these latter roles are of vital importance and frequently produce results, whose value either cannot be fully appreciated at the time, or, if known, cannot always be divulged for reasons of security.”
