Halifaxes replaced the Wellingtons in July 1942 and they, in turn, were superseded by Lancasters in October 1942. 576 Squadron was formed at Elsham Wolds in November 1943 operating Lancasters and shared the station with 103 Squadron until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.
