The plaque location is indicated by a red poppy in the second image. 

No. 464 Squadron was formed in 1942 in the United Kingdom with personnel from Australia, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the Netherlands.  The Squadron served in the light bomber role, undertaking operations over France and the Low Countries, from bases in England. It also flew night fighter missions.

Later, following D-Day, the Squadron moved to France where it was used to interdict German transports and infrastructure. It further engaged in several low-level precision raids against Gestapo targets in France and Denmark. The Squadron was disbanded in September 1945, following the conclusion of the war.
