Our Aim

The aim of this site is to preserve the history of the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) No. 35 Squadron, from its earliest beginnings during World War I, through to its latest disbandment in 1982.

This is a long term, non commercial, educational project, and we recognise that there are still huge gaps and scant notes on some subjects. However, with the main structure in place, time is now being spent on adding pages or updating existing ones (as and when new information comes to light). In essence, we 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, Movement Cards and Loss Cards) have been used as the primary source, but these do contain inaccuracies or are difficult to read. As such, it should be recognised that whilst every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, errors will occur; we therefore highly recommend that you use the material on the site in conjunction with other sources to ensure that we do not perpetuate historical inaccuracy.

Can we help you with your research?

We are happy to utilise the information that we have acquired in our archives to piece together a summary of the operational service of a relative for you.

If you would like any information regarding individuals, crews or aircraft that were on strength of the squadron, please get in touch via the CONTACT page.

All work is undertaken on a non-commercial basis, but we are more than happy for you to make a donation to the RAF Benevolent Fund for our time and effort, should you wish to do so.

Are you able to help?

The site can only be compiled with the help of people, like yourself, who have an interest in the squadron.

If you have any information, photographs or documents that you think could be incorporated, or you spot any errors or omissions, please get in touch via the CONTACT page.

We look forward to hearing from you.

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.


It should be pointed out that we have no official connection with the squadron or the Royal Air Force (other than the fact that one of our relatives was killed whilst serving with the squadron in February 1945)
