I think there is some confusion because of the way hurricane 3 worded his question. Leatherhead is talking about the British No. 162 squadron, while Hurricane3 seems to be asking about the U.S. 162nd Aero Squadron.
The 162nd Aero Squadron was initially formed in December, 1917 and went to England in February, 1918. Their emblem was a map of the U.S. which is a bit odd. There were a great many kinds of groups in the Air Service and they were all called Aero Squadrons whether they flew aircraft of some kind or were just groups of mechanics or construction personnel or even lumberjacks who were assigned to the U.S. to harvest spruce trees that were used to make aircraft. The 162nd Aero Squadron was comprised of two officers and 148 enlisted men and was a unit of mechanics whose job was to train other mechanics at various locations in England. They were not a front line unit and saw no combat.
