Hi All,
Ther seems to be a difference of opinion on the published histories of 53 Squadron as to the date of its reforming.Some give the date as being 28th June 1937 at Farnborough in the Army co-operation role,and others give the same day but in 1938.Does anyone have a definitive answer.
regards
Mike

Alan Lake in "Flying Units of the RAF" says 1937, FWIW.

Hi Martin,
Hadn't seen your post when I replied. Looks like we have a 3 to 1 in favour of 1937. Thanks for reply
Mike
