"Formed on 14 October, 1925, (this Squadron) was made up of men who worked in the City, who had an interest in aviation and who were f urther moved by a drive to serve their country. Under their first and probably best known commanding officer, the Rt Hon. Freddie Guest, MP, these Auxiliaries, who trained only at weekends, achieved a standard of efficiency which was the e n v y o f o t her 'regular' RAF Squdrons. Formed as a bomber squadron, No.600 became a night-fighter squadron in 1940, equipped with obsolete Blenheims, of which an entire flight was lost over Holland on the night of 10 May, 1940. Later in the S ec on d W or ld Wa r the Squadron served in North Africa, Malta and Italy, becoming the highest-scoring Allied night-fighter squadron of the war, by then flying in Beaufighters and Mosquitos and referred to by the enemy as 'The Fright of the Nig ht' . Dis ba nd ed in 1 945 , it was reformed a year later under Squadron Leader Hayes to become a day-fighter Squadron once again, flying in Spitfires and Gloster Meteors until it was finally disbanded in 1957...."
