At the start of the war 108 Squadron became a Bomber Command training squadron with Blenheims, first at RAF Bassingbourn and then at RAF Bicester. In April 1940 it was incorporated into 13 Operational Training Unit. The squadron was reformed in 1941 in Egypt flying Wellingtons, and subsequently B-24s before disbanding at the end of 1942. Reformed again in Egypt in 1943, this time as a night fighter squadron, it operated Beaufighters, and later Mosquitos, moving from Egypt to Malta, Libya, Greece and Italy before disbanding in 1945.
