History [ edit ]
Formation and World War II [ edit ]
Plans for formation of the squadron in
World War I never came to fruition. It was formed on 17 October 1941 and deployed to Egypt as a bomber unit but was attached to other units due to a lack of aircraft and disbanded on 15 February 1943.
On 5 September 1944 it formed as a
Transport Command unit equipped with Douglas Dakotas. Avro Ansons were added and operated until the squadron disbanded on 13 September 1946. It reformed on 1 February 1953 as an overseas ferry unit moving aircraft such a Sabres and Hunters before final disbandment upon merger with No. 167 Squadron RAF on 15 September 1958.
