At the start of the war 148 Squadron was a training squadron at RAF Stradishall equipped with Ansons and Wellingtons.  It moved in September 1939 to RAF Harwell where it was renumbered 15 Operational Training Unit in April 1940. Subsequently the squadron was reformed in Malta, again with Wellingtons, and saw action in Libya and Egypt. The squadron later operated from Libya and Italy in a Special Duties role equipped with B-24s, Halifaxes, Lysanders and Stirlings supporting resistance movements in southern France, Italy, the Balkans, Greece, Yugoslavia and Poland.
