The Desert Air Force first came into existence in late 1941 as the Western Desert Air Force. The wings of this force operated in close support of ground forces from 1941 to 1943 in the Middle East, Malta, Tunisia and Algeria. These wings operated a variety of aircraft including Blenheims, Hurricanes and Tomhawks. When the war in Africa ended in May of 1943, the DAF supported Allied landings in Sicily flying from airbases in Malta.
