|NO.101 FLEET CO-OPERATION FLIGHT / NO 9 SQUADRON HISTORY|
|The origins of No. 9 Squadron date back to 1925, about 5 years after the birth of the Royal Australian Air Force. The now disbanded unit had a very colourful 43 years of operational involvement embracing several military campaigns, which earned the Squadron entitlement to many 'Battle Honours' that are detailed under Ceremonial in the main menu.|
|The Association has initiated a comprehensive project to record the activities
of the unit from an operating level perspective (insofar as is practicable),
which will take several years and be titled 'Seagull to Blackhawk' (Copyright © Brian & Diane Dirou, 2001),
representing the types of aircraft first and last operated by the Squadron.
This colourful history will be provisionally collated in 3 volumes pertaining
to the following eras:1925 to 1944 - Naval Involvement
1962 to 1971 - Squadron Reformation and Vietnam
1972 to 1989 - Post-Vietnam to Disbandment
