1 Squadron HRAF

1 Squadron HRAF is the oldest squadron in His Royal Air Force. Originally created as the HRAF Wabasso Squadron, alongside HRAF St. George's Squadron, it was based in Wabasso, Mild Pond on a farming field. The duties of commanding officer of the Wabasso Squadron fell on the Chief of the Air Staff, Lord Carleton. It featured minimal staff, while St. George's Squadron fell into the Supplementary Air Unit category.

It was reformed as 1 (Flying) Regiment, Baustralian Army upon the subordination of HRAF to the Baustralian Army, and then was reformed again as an HRAF squadron upon their seperation. When the air force was dissolved, it split into His Royal Flying Corps of the Baustralian Army to form 1 (Flying) Regiment, and the other half merged with No. 1 Squadron, Naval Air Arm. Upon separation, HRAF Wabasso Squadron was renamed 1 Squadron HRAF.

On 3 June 2019, command was taken up by Flight lieutenant Duke of Tremur, following his appointment as Baustralian Chief Warrant Officer. When 2 Squadron HRAF was taken out of the SAU category, 1 Wing was formed under the command of Wing commander Duke of Tremur, while still commanding 1 Squadron. On 11 January 2021, the Deputy squadron leader of 1 Squadron, Flight lieutenant Alcibiades Theocharidis, was promoted to Wing commander, and took command of 1 Squadron.

2 Squadron HRAF is the second squadron in His Royal Air Force. Originally created as the HRAF St. George's Squadron, alongside HRAF Wabasso Squadron, it was based in St. Georges, Mild Pond on a farming field. It quickly fell into the Supplementary Air Unit category.

It was dissolved upon the subordination of HRAF to the Baustralian Army, and then was reformed again upon their seperation. When the air force was dissolved, it was once again dissolved. Upon separation, remaining in the SAU category, it was reformed as 2 Squadron HRAF (SAU).

On 11 January 2021, upon the re-establishment of 2 Squadron, command was taken by newly-commissioned WCdr Kaden Wright. It now has similar strength to 1 Squadron.
