No 3 Squadron was formed at Larkhill in 1912 from the No 2 (Aeroplane) Company under the command of the famous Major Robert Brooke-Popham.

Thereafter the Squadron distinguished itself in both World Wars, its battle honours including Mons, Neuve Chappelle, Loos, Somme 1916, Cambrai 1917, Somme 1918, The Battle of Britain, Normandy and Arnhem. More recently it has seen service in the Falklands, the Balkans and Iraq and Afghanistan. This book is a highly illustrated history of the Squadron's operations throughout its history. First-hand accounts and rare photographs are included in this ultimate record of one of the world's oldest and proudest military flying units.
