No. 347 Squadron RAF

The No. 347 Squadron RAF was a Free French bomber squadron given a Royal Air Force squadron number during World War II.

History

The squadron was formed at RAF Elvington on 20 June 1944 from GB I/25 ‘Tunisie’ airmen who had been based in the Middle East. It was equipped with British Halifax heavy bomber aircraft and then took part in night bombing raids over Germany.

The squadron moved to Bordeaux in October 1945 after hostilities had ceased and transferred from RAF to French control on 15 November 1945.
