No 99 Squadron

No 99 Squadron formed with Liberators at Leyburn, Queensland on 1 February 1945, moving to Jondaryan six weeks later. In May an advance party arrived in Darwin and was joined by the remainder of the Squadron some four months later.

During its short stay in Darwin the Squadron's 14 Liberators ferried former POWs and other personnel to Southern capitals - delivering cargo on the return journeys. During October, No 99 Squadron Liberators ferried nearly 800 ex-POWs and service personnel to various southern capitals.

No 99 Squadron moved to New South Wales in November 1945 where it disbanded some seven months later.
