The Pathfinders were an elite unit created to lead bombing raids and mark targets across enemy held territory. Despite covering considerable losses they made an invaluable contribution to the Allied war effort. Their main aircraft types were the Lancaster and Mosquito, and by 1945 the force had grown to some 19 Sqns operating from a total of 9 airfields. The force was disbanded soon after the end of the war, but the memory of this most famous unit will continue to live on for generations to come.
