No. 47 Squadron of the Royal Air Force operates the Hercules from RAF Lynehammarker, Wiltshiremarker.


No. 47 Squadron Royal Flying Corps was formed at Beverleymarker, East Yorkshire on 1 March 1916 as a home defence unit. It later saw action in Greece. After the end of World War I, in April 1919, the squadron was sent to Novorossiskmarker in Southern Russia to help General Denikin's White Russian forces in their fight against the Bolsheviks. Ostensibly, the RAF's mission was purely to provide training and support but No. 47 Squadron was included in the mission in order to carry out operational sorties. No. 47 Squadron was disbanded on 7 October 1919 by being redesignated 'A' Squadron, RAF Mission.
