    Default Avro Lincoln bombers at RAF Lindholme

    Can anyone please help with information on when the B2 variant of Avro Lincolns were flying out of RAF Lindholme, which squadron, when they moved out and where they went. I am a million miles out of my comfort zone with this one and I would really appreciate any help. Many thanks.

    Hello,

    Two choices:

    No.57 Sqn. Lindholme, Yorks.
    1 May 1946 - 7 October 1946 - to Waddington, Lincs.

    No.100 Sqn. Lindholme, Yorks.
    May 1946 - 28 October 1946 - to Hemswell, Lincs.

    Per: Jefford/RAF Squadrons.

    Col.

    Thanks Col,

    I have already responded to you but the post has not appeared. 100 Squadron seems the more likely of the two and I have acquired a photo of RF554, taken at RAF Yeadon about 1952 at what looks like some sort of air show. Unfortunately I have no URL for it as it is just on my desktop and I cannot post the picture. There is also a message box which states "You may not post attachments"

    Regards
    Neville

    Neville,

    I've got quite a lot of info on 100 when they were operating the Lincoln B.2. 100 spent some time in Egypt in 1952, on Suez protection duties. I've been through the ORB for the entire year, and there's no mention of Yeadon at all. I'll see what I can dig out later on when I'm not so busy :)
