The 3rd Scouting Force was formed at Wormingford in August 1944 and was attached to the 55th Fighter Group. The unit retained the 55th's squadron codes - CG (38 FS), CL (338 FS) and CY (343 FS). The 3rd SF unique marking was a red border to the horizontal and vertical tail planes and a red/white checkerboard rudder. The 3rd SF remained at Wormingford for their entire tour. In February 1945 they became the 862nd Bomb Squadron but no change in markings has been recorded.
