This site is the beginning of an historical documentation of the
brief, yet intense, 3 years of 197 Squadron's existence. The pilots,
the planes, the commanding officers, the ground crew: From the
military significance to the individual experience.
We wish to thank Richard Hadley, Chris Thomas, Janice Mullin at the IWM and, of course, members of 197 Squadron themselves for their generous support and contributions of information images and advice to this website.
Contributions from anecdotes and corrections to further documentation
or from those seeking to contact others involved with the squadron are all
most welcome. You can reach us either with the form below or by
