195 Squadron was formed at Duxford on November 16, 1942, and began to receive Typhoons later in the month. In February 1943 it moved to Lancashire for a period of training. Before it could take part in that operation, however, the squadron was disbanded in February 1944. On October 1, 1944, 195 re-formed from C Flight of 115 Squadron at Witchford as a Lancaster squadron in Bomber Command. It took part in raids over Germany for the rest of the war.

Designed by Sydney Camm for the British Air Ministry, the Typhoon was first flown on February 24th, 1940. The large under-fuselage chin radiator gave the Typhoon a menacing look, and was its most notable identifying physical feature. Powered by a Napier Sabre 24 cylinder engine-which gave it a top speed in excess of 400 mph-and fitted with air-to-ground rockets and two underwing bombs, it made an exceptional fighter-bomber hybrid. The Typhoon could engage ground targets and still hold its own against German bombers and fighters. It proved especially adept at engaging marauding Fw-190 on the British coast.
