Formed on 1st September 1942, 464 Squadron RAAF operated the Lockheed Ventura medium bomber until June 1943, when it transferred to the machines it would operate for the rest of the war - the superlative de Havilland Mosquito.

By the time of Operation Overlord, the Allies' assault on France, the Squadron had developed into a capable unit, harassing enemy lines of communication as well as static targets both by day and night. On the week of D-Day itself the unit flew 75 sorties, and for the whole month of June lost only five aircraft. For the next two months the Squadron found itself engaged in even more sorties, with 350 being flown in July alone. The Mosquito was an ideal machine for the type of low level bombing attacks being employed by the Squadron, being both fast and having the extra reliability of two engines. It remained the weapon of choice for 464 Squadron until it was disbanded in September 1945.
