No. 313 Squadron RAF was a Czechoslovakian-manned fighter squadron of the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.

It was first formed at Catterick on 10 May 1941, equipped with Spitfire I fighters and crewed mostly by escaped Czechslovakian pilots. The squadron continued flying various marks of Spitfire from UK bases until it was transferred to the Czechoslovakian air force in August 1945.
