united kingdom 110 squadron

Royal Air Force



1917 to 1971    




110 squadron
Formed 1 Nov 1917 with aircraft funded from India and took the name (Hyderabad), as a bombing unit. Moved to Far East in Mar 1942, where it disbanded as a transport unit with Valettas on 31 Dec 1957.

Reformed with Whirlwind HAR.4 on 3 Jun 1959 at Kuala Lumpur, when 155 & 194 Squadrons were amalgamated and renumbered. Moved to RAAF base at Butterworth in Sep 1959, where Sycamore HR.14s arrived in Apr 1960 and had replaced the Whirlwinds by Jul 1960. A detachment was sent to Brunei in Apr 1963 and following the introduction of the Whirlwind HAR.10 in Jul 1963, the whole unit moved to Singapore during Jan 1964 (frequently deploying detachments into Borneo, including single airframes to Long Pasia alongside Army Scouts), where it stayed until Nov 1967. Detachments in Borneo rotated frequently and moved within Borneo (eg the detachment at Labuan moved to Sibu and from Bario to Nanga Gaat, both in Sep 1965).

It received a boost in numbers on 1 Nov 1965 when some of the ex-225 Squadron Whirlwinds and crews were reassigned. On 6 Mar 1969 it moved to RAF Changi where it disbanded on 15 Feb 1971.



110 were moved to RAF Seletar in 1964 until the Changi move in 1969. Pilots from 110 did 3 weeks tours in Nangar Gaat, from 1964 till early 1967
