On the 9th of April 1965, 700B squadron was formed at Lossiemouth as the Buccaneer Intensive Flying Trials Unit equipped with the Buccaneer S2.  The flight eventually disbanded on 30 September 1965.

Our thanks go to Pete Cherry for donating these pictures of 700B Squadron & to H. Williams for finding a picture of the squadron badge.
