The station opened in July 1941 as part of 1 Group with 103 Squadron taking residence equipped with Wellingtons. The squadron remained at the station until it was disbanded in November 1945. Halifaxes replaced the Wellingtons in July 1942 and they, in turn, were superseded by Lancasters in October 1942. 576 Squadron was formed at Elsham Wolds in November 1943 operating Lancasters and shared the station with 103 Squadron until October 1944. 100 Squadron moved in with Lancasters in the last month of the war.
