725 Squadron commissioned into the RAN at NAS Nowra as a fleet requirements and communications unit flying a range of aircraft. (Was previously a RN Sqdn number). 724 Squadron becomes an all-jet squadron flying Sea Vampires and Sea Venoms. With the decision to operate just one carrier instead of two as originally planned, the need for 851 Squadron declined and the unit was decommissioned at NAS Nowra.
