No. 356 Squadron RAF was a squadron of the Royal Air Force from 1944 to 1945.


The squadron was formed on 15 January 1944 at Salbani as a long range bomber unit equipped with the Consolidated Liberator. The squadron attacked Japanese bases in South East Asia and planted mines outside enemy harbours. In July 1945 the squadron moved to the Cocos Islandsmarker to prepare for the invasion of Malaya. The end of the war came before the invasion was carried out and the squadron performed supply-dropping and transport duties until it was disbanded on 15 November 1945.
