No 60 Squadron

Formed at Wagga New South Wales in January 1942, No 60 Squadron's three flights of Wirraways were soon relocated to nearby Cootamundra. Operational training for the squadron consisted of flight formation, high dive-bombing and air to ground gunnery.

In conjunction with another Squadron based at Wagga, No 60 Squadron conducted air-defence exercises against the possibility of a Japanese air raid.

No 60 Squadron's existence was short, however, as the Unit was disbanded only three months after its formation.
