Welcome to the web site of 627 Squadron in Retirement, the association of 627 Squadron, Royal Air Force.

627 now has enough material for a Documentary or a TV mini-series on a par with HBOs "Band of Brothers"

We are now looking for a production company willing to invest in these projects

Possible Blue on Blue? Royal Marines are under suspicion. Where's the chippy?


The Squadron existed for less than two years between 1943 and 1945 and its main role was to drop target indicators visually with extreme precision for 5 Group and later Main Force using the De Havilland Mosquito. Since 1989 many former members of the Squadron have held reunions and participated in various other events. This web site provides details of the Squadron's activities during the Second World War and up to the present day.
