History

Formation and World War II

Plans for formation of the squadron in World War I never came to fruition. It was formed in on 15 October 1941 at Risalpur, India, then moved to Assam where it was equipped with Mohawks. Upon arrival in Calcutta it was equipped with Hurricanes and flew missions over Burma. It converted to Thunderbolts before its disbandment in June 1945.
