In June 1939, the squadron began to receive Sunderlands, and following the outbreak of war the squadron began patrols of the English Channel and Western Approaches. When Germany invaded Norway in April 1940 and British forces were sent to support the Norwegians, the squadron was moved to Sullom Voe to patrol the North Sea and the Norwegian coast.
The squadron remained in the Shetlands after the withdrawal of British forces and the collapse of Norway, but in April 1941 it moved to Reykjavik in Iceland. However, its stay in Iceland was brief and in July it was sent to Gibraltar and the following month, even further south to Gambia in West Africa, where it remained for the rest of the war, disbanding on 30 June 1945.
