• The squadron is named after Maresfield in recognition of time spent in the village camp and Maresfield Park in the 20th century.
Maresfield was an army training camp from 1915 when Maresfield `Park was seized from Prince Munster for the Crown under the Trading with the Enemy Act 1914, on May 10, 1915. It is documented that composer Ralph Vaughan Williams attended the camp in 1917.
