I am searching for information about 148sqd. The reason Im looking for it, is that there's a student at the flying school that I work for who during the war flew halifaxes. We at the school are trying to find anything to do with 148sqd to make something up for him for next wednesdays celebration of 100years of aviation. Another student has offered to make him a wooden halifax but we are unsure of sizes (this isnt going to be lifesize) but if we did get those sizes he could adjust them down so he could fit it onto his sideboard! I would be grateful of any help.

Without wishing to sound flippant, your best bet is to buy an Airfix (or similar) kit as the Halifax is not exactly something that is easy to describe.

As for the Squadron, they flew the Halifax II (mainly) between March '43 and Jan 44 in the Med area (Italy and North Africa). At other times during the war thay also flew the Wellington, Stirling and Liberator.
The Sqn motto was 'Trusty'
Sqn Code letters were FS (followed by individual aircraft letter eg FS-A)

Hope this is a start.

Eddie
