No. 327 Squadron
Formed on 1 December 1943 by renumbering a French unit based in Corsica and together with No 326 and 328 Squadrons, it formed a Free French fighter Wing on the island.
The Wing covered the Allied landing in Southern France in August 1944 and in September moved to Alsace Lorraine, where they flew offensive patrols supporting the First French Army on its advance into Germany.
Initially equipped with Spitfire VB/Cs, and IXs, by April 1944 the Mk Vs had gone and between July and September 1944 it also used the Mk VIII, after which it reverted to just the Mk IX, which it continued to operate until November 1945, when it ceased to be a RAF unit.
