Formed at Skipton-on-Swale, Yorkshire, England, on Sept. 25, 1943, as the RCAF’s 32nd – 14th and last bomber squadron formed overseas. The unit flew Halifax and Lancaster aircraft on strategic and tactical bombing operations. After hostilities in Europe, it remained in England as part of the Royal Air Force's Bomber Command strike force, under which it lifted prisoners of war back to England. The squadron was disbanded on Oct. 15, 1945. Source: RCAF Association
