    Not sure it's what you want, but organisations were set up from spring 1942 for handling POWs and intelligence obtained from them. However these were attached to C-in-C Medditerranean, responsible for POW intelligence in the Med. and Indian Ocean. One such unit was Allied Capture Intelligence Centre (ACIC) at Algiers, an amalgamation of US and British technical officers, from February 1943. Most POWs before this time were air or naval and they seem to be handled on an inter-service basis administered by the War Office. There is however no specific mention of RAF (ACIC Air). 'Allied' would infer not specific to RAF and this is the only mention of 'ACIS' in this book. They were however closely associated with PR squadrons and photographic intelligence, so perhaps this is the RAF link?

    This from British Intelligence In The Second World War, Vol II, Hinsley 1981.

    EDIT: There is a mention of the Air Ministry involvement on a following page, when the unit was renamed CSDIC (Combined Services Detailed Interrogation Centre) . The air section maintained a comprehensive index of GAF personalities and order of battle. There's about 8+ pages in total in this volume.
