World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


RAF Ingham was a Bomber Command station from 1942 to 45, an all-grass airfield which served as a satellite for Hemswell. The 18 May, 1942 saw the arrival of 300 Polish Masovian Squadron from RAF Hemswell operating Wellington bombers. They were joined on 23 July, 1942 by the 305 Polish Ziemia Wielkopolska Squadron also flying Wellingtons. The 3 February, 1943 saw the arrival of 199 Squadron from RAF Blyton. 300 Squadron left for Hemswell 31 January, 1943 to convert to Lancasters followed by 305 on 20 June, 1943. 199 Squadron left for RAF Lakenheath on 20 June, 1943. The station then became home to 1481 (Bomber) Gunnery Flight until the end of the conflict. In 1944 the station was renamed RAF Cammeringham. The station was later used for the resettlement of Polish aircrews.
