    Default St Eval - Coastal Command - Spring 1945

    I have to admit that I'm not good with Coastal, I have a lot to learn there. I am struggling to work out who inhabited St Eval in the Spring of 1945 other than a Polish squadron which I think was 304 ? Were there RAF Coastal units based there ? Please can anybody tell me the Wing/Group/Base Commander ?
    Any help is sincerely appreciated.

    cheers Pete

    Hello Pete,
    From Military Airfields of Britain South West England, pages 221-227
    179 Sqn - 1 Nov 44 to 30 Sept 46
    280 Sqn Autumn 1944 to Autumn 1945
    282 Sqn 19 Sept 44 to July 45
    304 Sqn 6 March 45 to July 45

    "Action Stations " No.5 pages 163 to 170 also makes mention of 224 Sqn replacing the Polish Squadron in July and that in the same month 282 Sqn was disbanded..
