No. 673 Squadron (RAF) during the Second World War

Aircraft - Locations - Group and Duty - Books

No.673 Squadron was an airborne operations squadron formed in South East Asia late in 1944 but that was never used in combat. No.673 Squadron was formed at Bikram in January 1945. It was to be equipped with eighty Hadrian gliders and ten light aircraft, as were five other similar squadrons. Nos.671, 672 and 673 squadrons formed No.344 Wing, while the remaining three squadrons formed No.343 Wing.

All six squadrons had a frustrating time during 1945, spending their time training for airborne operations that never came. None had seen active service when the Japanese surrendered. No.673 Squadron was disbanded on 25 October 1945.
