At the start of the war the Battles of 150 Squadron was sent to France as part of the Advanced Air Striking Force. On returning to Britain in June 1940 the squadron was assigned to 1 Group, re-equipped with Wellingtons and spent two weeks at RAF Stradishall before moving to RAF Newton where it stayed until July 1941. The squadron then spent 15 months at RAF Snaith followed by three months at RAF Kirmington. At the end of 1942 the squadron was transferred to North Africa. In November 1944 the squadron was reformed back in 1 Group at RAF Fiskerton as a Lancaster squadron, moving three weeks later to RAF Hemswell for the rest of the war. It took part in Operation Manna, dropping food to the Dutch in the last days of the war.
