hi, just wondering does anyone know anything about the history of the 111 squadron which has now disbanded, i can't find much about. i know it was based in RAF Leuchars but that's only because my grandfather used to be an armour in 111. any info about it would be great as i would love to do a tribute for them because there is next to none

Sorry to appear rude, but do you not know how to use Google? I put "111 Sqn RAF" into Google and found a raft of websites showing the history fo 111 sqn and well as a lot of images.

They were involved in some of the biggest battles in the Battle of Britain - so try including Battle of Britain in the search.

There are tributes to 111 squadron including paintings of some of their most famous operations. I think that the painting recently commissioned for RAF Northolt shows a 111 Sqn Hurricane takling off.

If you are still lost they contacting the RAf musuem at Hendon.
