78 Squadron RAAF

Kittyhawk Fighters RAAF  WWII

The 78 Squadron Association, established in Sydney after World War II, is a dedicated group of  former squadron members committed to preserving the legacy of their achievements. Over the years, the responsibility of managing the association has been passed down, ensuring the squadron's name and history remain prominent in Australian history.

As we have bid farewell to many friends and ol mates, it's important to note that there are no new members of the 78 Squadron RAAF, as the squadron was disbanded on April 1, 1948. Surviving members, family, relatives, and friends keep the memory of the 78 KittyHawk Fighter Squadron alive through the association, with the help of small donations and merchandise sales, for which we are grateful.

We honor the men of the 78 Squadron RAAF through this website and on Anzac Day in Sydney on April 25 every year . On the following pages, you will find a selection of carefully restored images that provide a glimpse into the world they faced during World War II.

If you are able to make a small donation to help us maintain our website, support research, and ensure the flame of remembrance continues to burn brightly, we would be most appreciative. Thank you.
