At the start of the war 100 Squadron was stationed in Singapore equipped with obsolete Vildebeests and in early 1942 it was virtually destroyed by the Japanese. In December 1942 the squadron was reformed at RAF Grimsby in 1 Group Bomber Command equipped with Lancasters. In April 1945 the squadron moved to RAF Elsham Wolds. The squadron took part in Operation Manna, dropping food to the Dutch, and Operation Exodus repatriating ex-prisoners of war.
