Are all these aircraft in the Royal Australian Air Force? Because it's quite confusing as you're putting the RAAF at the end of the squadron.

If it's in the RAAF, it would be RAAF (#) Sqdn.

But since 450-467 Squadrons in the RAF were made up of Australians, they'd have been (#) RAAF Sqdn.

I sure hope someone understands what I just said. :rolleyes:
