6 FIGHTER SECTOR HEADQUARTERS
IN AUSTRALIA DURING WW2
6 Fighter Sector Headquarters RAAF, later known as 106 Fighter Control Unit, was setup in the Masonic Hall at 48 Alma Street at Mt. Lawley on 11 April 1942. The Headquarters was connected to American Radar Units using SCR radars, north and east of Perth.
Between January and March 1945 they moved into a new underground bunker in Epsom Avenue at Belmont in Perth. This complex is now used by the State Emergency Service.
6 Fighter Sector Headquarters was renamed to 106 Fighter Control Unit (106 FCU) on 7 March 1944.
106 Fighter Control Unit was disbanded at Mount Lawley, WA on 21 January 1945
