    I hope this is a start:

    "2757 Squadron

    Formed as No 757 Squadron at Nutts Corner on 19 December 1941, having been unnumbered from the previous April. On 1 February 1942 all RAF Regiment Squadrons had 2000 added to their numbers. It moved to the RAF Depot in 1942, becoming a Field Squadron in March 1943 The squadron joined 2nd Tactical Air Force in April 1944, becoming an Armoured Car Unit in Unit in July 1944, moving to the continent in August, becoming together with 2717 Squadron and an RAF Air Technical Intelligence (ATI) Team the first RAF unit to enter Rouen, before taking another ATI Team into Bayeux and becoming the first British unit into Trouville. It later moved to Antwerp and served on the Leopold Canal before moving, in 1945, into Germany, serving at Wunstorf and Bonn in 1945, Gutersloh in 1946 and Celle in 1947, being disbanded by being renumbered No 3 Squadron on 21 August 1947 at Gutersloh.
