Yeah No.245 Squadron served with Fighter Command from 1939 until 1943, before joining 2nd Tactical Air Force to take part in the D-Day invasion. The squadron was reformed on 30 October 1939 at Leconfield, and was originally equipped with Blenheim fighters. In January 1940 Battles were issued for training in single engined aircraft, and in March the squadron converted to the Hurricance.

In January 1943 the squadron converted to the Typhoon, and in June 1943 it joined the new 2nd Tactical Air Force. Attacks on targets in France continued, but now with communications targets as the main priority. In April 1944 the squadron began to use rockets as its main weapon.Several aircraft including Typhoon IB MP197 MR-U has Sharkmouth nose air!
