Sixty Squadron R.A.F

In the autumn of 1915, the Germans began producing the Fokker monoplane and in the following months would prove themselves a nuisance for the artillery observation machines.  As a result, General Trenchard decided to form some new scout squadrons to counter the new threat: one of them was No. 60 Squadron. By war’s end the squadron’s members had been awarded 1 Victoria Cross, 5 Distinguished Service Orders, 1 Bar to DSO, 37 Military Crosses and 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and claimed over three hundred aerial victories. ‘Sixty Squadron R.A.F.’ is a classic squadron history of World War I.
