No. 274 Squadron RAF began to form as a patrol squadron, intended to fly Vickers Vimys, at Seaton Carew in November 1918 a few days before the end of World War I. The squadron formation was then cancelled. It was reformed on 15 June 1919 as a bomber squadron, flying Handley Page V/1500s, but disbanded soon after on 30 January 1920. It reformed again at Amriya on 19 August 1940 as a fighter squadron consisting of A Flight with Hurricanes and B flight with Gladiators.[1]
