No 622 Squadron was formed on 10 August 1943 at Mildenhall from C Flight of No.15 Squadron. Equipped with Stirlings, it began operations on the same night as forming, converting to Lancasters in December. It formed part of the main force of Bomber Command and took part in attacks on German industry until the end of the war. After a short period of trooping to Italy, the squadron disbanded on 15 August 1945.
