united kingdom 668 squadron

Army Air Corps



1944 to present    




Assembled on 16 Nov 1944 (Nr Calcutta) as 668 Sqn RAF and joined part of 343 Wing when it formed in Basal, India on  1 Jan 1945 initially training for glider assault operations against the Japanese. It disbanded in Nov 1945.



As of 2014 is part of 2 Regt ACC at Middle Wallop. Trains units in ground handling
I served with 668 Squadron in 1970 it used to be called 13flt, everyone came from different units and the name change happened in early 1971 before i returned to my unit this was a special time as there was a secret war going on. C Squadron 22 SAS used our helicopters for training high altitude jumps. We crossed the dessert on foot i think it was 150 mile in 72 hrs a race against the Scots Guards. You should find information by searching 13flt RAF. Can you help with helicopter engine failure dates?
