An advanced party of 21 Squadron RAAF, arrived at Leyburn airfield from Camden in New South Wales on 9 July 1944. The advanced party comprised 1 Officer, 29 Other Ranks, 2 Chev trucks, 1 Dodge Weapon Carrier, blankets, mess gear and 7 days rations.

When they arrived at Leyburn airfield, the camp consisted of one large building which was the mess hall and kitchen. They immediately started to dig latrines and erect tents in readiness for the arrival of the crews. The camp was about 3 miles from the airfield hidden in a pine and she-oak forest on the Leyburn to Clifton Road.
