    Default Looking for information on RAF Regiment Squadrons and Flights

    I seem to be unable to find any details for 2772 and 2952 Squadrons and 4232 AA Flight. Would be very appreciative of any information to gentle shoves in the right direction.

    Thanks
    Matt

    Hello Matt,
    Try these files at Kew:

    AIR 29/136 2952 Squadron RAF Regiment. Based at Netheravon and Gravesend.
    Date: 1943 Aug.-Oct.

    AIR 29/91 2772 Squadron RAF Regiment, formed Grantham (UK) on 30 September 1942; moved to Brunton 26 October 1942; moved to Predannack 8 January 1943; moved to Warmwell 15 June 1943 with detachment at Ibsley; at Thorney Island by 1 December 1944 as Anti-Aircraft squadron.

    If you need any help accessing them, PM me.
    Hope this helps,

    If you need some background on the RAF Regiment, there is a useful link at: http://forcespublishing.co.uk/pdfs/t..._adversity.pdf

    The two squadrons are briefly mentioned but, as I have found with previous projects that I have done on the RAF Regiment, the Flight information is scarce.

    Regards

    Pete
