No.625 Squadron was part of Bomber Command's main force from its formation in October 1943 until the end of the Second World War. The squadron was formed on 1 October 1943 around 'C' Flight of No.100 Squadron, a system that allowed the new squadron to become operational very quickly.
During its existence the squadron took part in 193 missions, flying 3,385 sorties for the loss of 66 aircraft in combat and 8 in crashes (just under 2%).
After the end of the war in Europe the squadron was used on trooping flights between the UK and Italy, before being disbanded on 7 October 1945.
