No. 69 Squadron RAF

The name No. 69 Squadron has been used by the Royal Air Force for two quite different units.

No. 3 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps was formed at Point Cook, Victoria, Australia on 19 September 1916. To avoid confusion with No. 3 Squadron, RAF, it was known to the British military as "No. 69 Squadron", although this terminology was never accepted by the squadron or the Australian Imperial Force.

The squadron was "re-formed" on 10 January 1941 during World War II, when No. 431 Flight RAF, on Malta was redesignated No. 69 Squadron.

The squadron flew English Electric Canberras from RAF Gutersloh in Germany briefly from 1954.
