On May 24th 1939
administrative control of the Fleet Air Arm was transferred to the
Board of Admiralty from the Royal Air Force. Four airfields in
the UK were transferred to the Fleet Air Arm, these were the
stations at Donibristle, Lee-on-Solent, Ford, and Worthy Down, but
they still relied entirely on lodger facilities at RAF stations when
operating overseas. During the early days of the war the navy took
steps to obtain its own airfields both in the UK and near to
strategic bases abroad; some were to be purpose built and others
taken over from the RAF.
