No. 212 Squadron was formed on August 20, 1918,based at the seaplane station at Great Yarmouth. It carried out antisubmarine patrols for the rest of the war and disbanded in February 1920. On February 10, 1940, No. 212 re-formed at Heston to carry out strategic photographic reconnaissance duties in France, working closely with the Photographic Development Unit. It was intended to have three detachments each of three Spitfires, but in the absence of sufficient camera-equipped Spitfires, No. 212 was equipped with Blenheims. After flying some operational missions, the detachment in France was forced to evacuate its base and the squadron was absorbed by the Photographic Development Unit on June 18, 1940. It was redesignated the Photographic Reconnaissance Unit in July.

Supermarine Spitfire Mk V

Designed by R.J.Michell to meet a British Air Ministry specification, the Supermarine Spitfire first flown on March 5th, 1936. With its combination of beautiful fighter design, the excellent performance of its Rolls-Royce Merlin powerplant and firepower provided by twin cannons and four machine guns, the Spitfire became an unrivaled symbol of victory. The Spitfire had 40 major variants and was built in greater numbers than any other British aircraft of the time. It flew operationally on every front between 1939 and 1945 and was engaged in every one of the Royal Air Force's major actions.
