After Sartoris' trick in "All the Dead Pilots," "the brigadier and the Wing Commander" arrive at the squadron's aerodrome to investigate (527). Historically, Wing Commanders were in charge of multiple squadroons. That the high command would personally see to the Sartoris-Spoomer rivalry speaks to the influence of Spoomer's uncle, himself a brigadier general in a different branch of the British military.
