This site is dedicated to all who served with No. 35 Squadron (1916 – 1982) and to the memory of those that lost their lives in doing so.
The aim of this site is to preserve the history of No. 35 Squadron (RAF), from its earliest beginnings during World War I, through to its latest disbandment in 1982.
Whilst the focus is on the flying activity, it should be remembered that the squadron community included the air crew, the ground staff (who were either on strength of the squadron or the station), wives, partners and families.
This is a long term, non commercial, educational project and I see the site as a repository for information about the squadron which can be used as a point of reference.
Wherever possible, original documents, such as the squadron’s Operations Record Book, Aircraft Movement Cards and Bomber Command Loss Cards, have been used as the primary source of information. However, due to inaccuracies in some of the documents and poor quality in others, transcription errors may have occurred and I highly recommend that you use the material on the site in conjunction with other sources to ensure that we do not perpetuate historical inaccuracy.
The history can only be compiled with the help of people, like yourself, who have an interest in the squadron.
If you have any information or copies of photographs or documents that could be included in the archive and/or published on the website, please get in touch via the e-mail link on this page or via the COMMENTS page.
I look forward to hearing from you.
