History

The squadron was formed on 10 January 1944 as a transport unit within 46 Group. This group was created as a Transport Support Group and was to have 5 squadrons at 3 new bases, RAF Down Ampney, RAF Blakehill Farm and RAF Broadwell[2] The intended squadrons were two already exting ones, Nos. 271, 512 and three new to be formed ones: 569, 575 and 597 squadron. In the event only 575 squadron was really formed, and 48 squadron and 233 squadron took the other places, though personnel under training with 512 squadron had been intended for service with 569 squadron.[2] No. 569 squadron, like 597 squadron was disbanded on 1 March 1944 before it had any aircraft or personnel.[3][4]
