Description

Squadron Prints Lithograph No. 1684 - 4624 (County of OXford) Movements Squadron, RAF Brize Norton.

No. 4624 Squadron was formed at RAF Brize Norton in 1982 to undertake air movements duties in support of the RAF. When the Sovereign’s Colour was presented to the Royal Auxiliary Air Force by the Queen in 1989, No. 4624 Squadron provided the escort. In 1994 the Squadron badge was enshrined in the Church of the Royal Air Force, St Clement Danes. In 2014, in recognition of the Squadron’s support to its home county, the Squadron was granted the Freedom of Oxfordshire. Since its earliest days, the Squadron’s Part-Time Volunteer Reservists have worked alongside their Regular colleagues, and frequently undertake defence tasks around the world in support of operations and exercises. Personnel were first mobilised for the Gulf War in 1991, when the whole squadron was deployed, earning a Unit Citation from the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire. Since that time personnel have continually been mobilised to support enduring operations across the world, including the Balkans, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Afghanistan, Mali and Cyprus. More recently personnel stepped out-of-role and deployed within the UK, providing support to civil authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Squadron has earned a high reputation over the years and as it marks the 40th Anniversary of its foundation, continues to make a valued and valuable contribution, always “Ready to Move”.
