“FSGT Richard Hutchison (Ret’d) has been working on this history of No 22 (City of Sydney) Squadron since the early 1980s. He interviewed a number of wartime members of the squadron. He assembled a number of artefacts in the course of interviewing which are in the possession of the No 22 (City of Sydney) Squadron Association. Unfortunately “Dementia” has overtaken Richard before he could complete the history and therefore the Association has taken on the task of completing the history on his behalf in 2017. It has been managed by the Association committee. Peter Hayes, Alan Lyons and Alan Campbell had the pleasure, responsibility and opportunity of editing and finishing the manuscript. A number of photographs taken by members of the Squadron during WWII have been added – we apologise for the poor quality in some cases.

FLGOFF Allan Miller, a WWII navigator who served with 22 Squadron, has provided us with his recollections from May 1945 until the disbandment of the squadron in August 1946. He has given his permission to use his recollections.

This is not an official history but contains a lot of anecdotal observations that complement the official record.”
