113 Squadron

A comprehensive site covering the activities and history of the RAF 113 Squadron in the Middle East fighting both the Japanese and Germans. The 113 was a bomber squadron initially, flying Blenheims in the deserts of North Africa, Greece, Crete, India and Burma. It later converted to a fighter Squadron flying Hurricanes and Thunderbolts throughout Burma. The Squadron has an incredible rich history which has to be read to be believed. This includes direct support of the army and a key role in driving Gen Rommel from the desserts of North Africa to flying in Monsoons driving the Japanese from the Jungles of Burma with the famous American Flying Tigers. No squadron in RAF history was wiped out more times, sustained higher losses or fought in more theatres than the 113.
