    Default 128 Squadron - Pathfinders?

    Hi All,

    This is probably a trivial question but here goes...

    128 Squadron was reformed at Wyton as a Light Night Striking Force attached to 8 Group. Does this mean they were classified as a pathfinder squadron and as such were the aircrew entitled to the Pathfinder Force Certificate and therefore wear the Pathfinder Force Badge.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Russ
