The Pathfinder 156 Squadron moved from Wyton to Warboys on 5 Aug 1942 with Wellington Bombers. On 1 Jan 1943 Lancasters arrived. 156 Squadron remained at Warboys until Mar 1944 when it moved to Upwood. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Warboys airfield in Feb 1944.

By May 1945, the Pathfinder force had made 50,490 sorties with the appalling loss of 3727 men - about 1/6 of total Bomber Command casualities from the whole war.

The commemorative window, which cost £2000, was dedicated at the annual Pathfinder reunion weekend in May 1991 by Group Captain Hamish Mahadie.
