An Illustrated History of No.1 Squadron ,
RNZAF 1930-1984.

''No.1 Squadron RNZAF had its beginnings
at Hobonsville Airfield, Auckland in 1930.
With the outbreak of WWII, the 3 active
territorial squadrons, No.1 Auckland,
No.2 Wellington and No.3 Christchurch,
were merged into one unit and put into a
wartime role with the new RNZAF Station
Whenuapai as its base. The squadron's
aircraft were Vickers Vincent & Vildebeest
biplanes, and duties included anti-submarine
and anti-raider patrols, along with convoy
escort work. The obsolete biplanes were
replaced by Lockheed Hudson light bombers
and, later, by PV-1 Venturas. Disbanded in
1945, it re-emerged in 1948 - again as a
territorial unit - and continued its activities
until it was again disbanded in July 1957.
August 1972 it was reformed as a transport
and communications squadron, equipped
with Bristol Freighters, replaced in 1976
by Hawker Siddeley Andovers. The unit
continued its work until it was
deactivated in December 1984.''
