No. 2278 Squadron, Royal Air Force Regiment was an airfield defence squadron of the Royal Air Force.[1]



The squadron was formed as No 778 (Ground Defence) Squadron at RAF Jurby, Isle of Man on 19 December 1941, having been unnumbered from the previous April. On 1 February 1942 all RAF Regiment Squadrons had 2000 added to their numbers thus the squadron was re-designated No. 2778 Squadron Royal Air Force Regiment.


No. 2778 Squadron remained at Jurby until it moved to RAF Manston in 1942. It converted to the Light Anti Aircraft role in May 1943. During the anti-Diver operations of 1944 it was based at Maidstone.


No. 2778 Squadron was disbanded in May 1945.
