History of 21 Squadron

Originally formed on 20 April 1936 at Laverton in Victoria, as a reserve unit of the Citizen Air Force, 21 Squadron flew wartime patrols escorting troopships across the Great Australian Bight enroute to Europe. After re-equipping with Wirraways, the unit moved to Singapore Island in August 1940. On arrival its aircraft were gradually replaced with Brewster Buffalo fighters and the unit then moved to north-east Malaya.

The remaining serviceable aircraft flew to Butterworth and withdrew first to Ipoh and then to Kuala Lumpur.
