Response to Squadrons/VE Day
-- 202 Sqdn (Coastal Command) was part of 15 Group at Castle Archdale, Fermanagh beginning 01/44. Disbanded 06/27/45. Catalina IV aircraft. Detachment from 202 Sqdn with 18 Group (Shetland Islands). Departed 06/45
-- 221 Sqdn (Coastal Command) was part of 16 Group at Edku, Egypt, arriving 01/45. Disbanded 08/45. Detachments at El Adim/Benina/Aqir which departed 08/45
-- 238 Sqdn (Fighter Command) was part of 10 Group at Chilbolton, Hampshire in 1941. Transferred to Middle East (El Firdan, 05/41)
I don't see anything linking these three squadrons at a common station. 202 and 221 are Coastal Command squadrons operating in different theatres (UK and MTO) and flying dissimilar aircraft (Catalina's and Wellingtons, respectively).
Are you able to post the image in question?
