In 1938, 99 Squadron was the first squadron to be equipped with Wellingtons. At the start of the war it was part of 3 Group at RAF Mildenhall but moved by mid-September 1939 to RAF Newmarket, via a few days at RAF Elmdon. It stayed at RAF Newmarket until March 1941 when it moved to RAF Waterbeach. It transferred to India in February 1942 to conduct bombing operations against the Japanese in Burma, Thailand and Malaya. B-24s replaced the Wellingtons in September 1944.
