RAF No 1(Fighter) Squadron, can trace its history back to 1878 when it was formed at Woolwich as No 1 Balloon Company of the Royal Engineers. It became No 1 Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps on 13 May 1912, still with balloons, but re-equipped with aircraft 2 years later. It currently operates Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft from RAF Lossiemouth where its primary task at is to maintain the Quick Reaction Alert (Interceptor) North mission. 1(F) Sqn joins 6 Sqn in providing crews and aircraft at high states of readiness 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to police UK airspace whilst also providing capability and support to contingent operations worldwide.
I’m always looking to buy or trade for squadron coins. Please message me if you have any available.
