|Formed||11-1944 at Saint Mandrier|
This unit was founded because the French had a great need for
maritime transportplanes for the Mediterranean. The first Dornier arrived on
December 29th 1944 to this transport/communications/rescue squadron.
The new Do-24T-3's were on service with a number of French planes
that survived the war, the Breguet Bizerte, A Latecoure 611 and
a Breguet 730. Longrange flights were made from their base Saint
Mandrier near Toulon to French north and west Africa including
such faraway places as Dakar.
January 14th 1952 became Escadrille 30S, all planes were transferred to Escadrille 53S.
