139 Squadron was equipped with Blenheims at the start of the war and was sent to France in December 1939. The squadron returned to Britain in May 1940 and operated Blenheims in 2 Group from RAF West Raynham, RAF Horsham St Faith and RAF Oulton until the end of 1941 when it converted to Hudsons and transferred to the Far East. The squadron reformed back in 2 Group at RAF Horsham St Faith in June 1942 again with Blenheims but moved to RAF Marham and converted to Mosquitos in September 1942. In July 1943 the squadron transferred to 8 Group and operated from RAF Wyton and RAF Upwood in the Pathfinder and Light Night Striking Force until the end of the war.
