Squadron History

405 Bomber Reconnaissance Squadron was activated on 1 April 1947 at RCAF Station Greenwood equipped with Lancaster aircraft and was redesignated 405 Maritime Reconnaissance Squadron and then 405 Maritime Patrol Squadron in April 1950 equipped with modified Maritime Patrol Mark X Lancasters. The Squadron reequipped with P2V 7 Neptune in mid 1955 giving the squadron a much greater anti submarine
capability.

In April 1958 the Squadron was the first to convert to the Canadian built CP 107 Argus. The squadron made its last flight in the Argus on 10 November 1980 with its replacement the Canadianized version of the P 3C Orion designated the CP 140 Aurora in 1981. The Squadron has added the CP 140 Arcturus to its fleet and its primary combat functions continue with anti submarine ASW and anti surface warfare ASUW as well as search and rescue counter-drug operations with the RCMP and anti pollution and fisheries patrols under 14 Wing.
