History

The squadron began to form as a patrol squadron, intended to fly Vickers Vimys, at Seaton Carew in November 1918 a few days before the end of World War I. The squadron formation was then cancelled. It was reformed on 15 June 1919 as a bomber squadron, flying Handley Page V/1500s, but disbanded on 30 January 1920.

Groundcrew of No. 274 Squadron overhaul a Hawker Hurricane Mark I during the siege of Tobruk.
