An influential young Air Ministry Officer, Sydney Bufton of the Directorate of Bombing Operations was tasked with putting a paper together to remedy the ineffective bombing results.

He was significantly younger (30's) than Harris and his Air Vice Marshalls (50's) and this exacerbated what was to prove a spikey and contentious relationship.

His paper and subsequent scheme demanded the establishment of a 'small force of highly skilled and determined crews who could locate, identify and illuminate the target, to act as both a beacon and an aiming point for following aircraft.' Crews selected would be of 'above average standard because their task required precise co-ordination, accurate timing and determination.'
