    Default 83 & 85 RAAF Squadrons Information

    Hi Guys,
    Iím seeking any information regarding the 83 and 85 RAAF Squadrons during WWII. My grandfather was involved in these units as a LAC ground crew. Does anyone know if the squadrons have unit histories?
    I have got his service record. But that is as far as I have been able to go with the research, so any help your be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Try looking on the web, Wikepedia has some very good information on both squadrons.

    I have the 83 squadron unit history - but it is rare and expensive and is basically focused on aircrew, not much chance of any mention of an LAC.
