No.24 Squadron

Formed at Amberley, Queensland, on 17 June 1940, the squadron was one of the first to be involved in action against the Japanese in the South West Pacific area in defence of Australia and its territories.

The squadron reformed in 1942 after savage fighting in defence of Rabaul, operating in a number of theatres, and with a range of aircraft.  Disbanded in 1946, the squadron was reformed in 1951 as the City of Adelaide Squadron.
