The successor of 101 Fleet Co-operation Flight (which operated in the 1920s from HMAS Albatross), 9 (Fleet Co-operation) Squadron was formed in 1939.  It operated Seagull and Walrus aircraft from Australian, British and New Zealand warships during the Second World War, notably in HMA Ships Sydney, Perth and Canberrra.
