Historical Account: By the autumn of 1939, No. 13 Squadron was equipped with Lysanders and operated in France until May 1940, when the group changed role and theater. The following year was spent on anti-submarine and anti-invasion patrols before Blenheims arrived, and the squadron returned to army cooperation duties.
