Examples of Types of Operations:
This unit was re-formed in September of 1942 in India, and began
flying Beaufighter sorties against Japanese targets. Although
the first Mosquito to arrive on Squadron was delivered in April
of 1943, official conversion did not start until December of that
year, with the first such sortie flown on Christmas Day.
A number of troubles plagued the deployment of the Mosquito
in the Far East - all operations were halted for some time due
to difficulties with the original glue - formaldehyde glue was
later used with more success. The Squadron eventually reverted
to Beaufighters, sending some of its Mosquitoes to 680 Squadron.
