The squadron was used to provide patrols over the Indian Ocean and the approaches to Malaya and Singapore. In October a detachment was posted on Ceylon, and gradually expanded until by February 1940 the entire squadron was based there. The remaining Singapore-based personnel went to No.205 Squadron. In May 1940, with Italy clearly about to enter the war, the squadron was moved to the Mediterranean where it flew reconnaissance sorties for the Mediterranean fleet and anti-submarine patrols. The squadron was based in Egypt, but from June began to use Kalafrana, Malta, as an advanced operating base. The squadron was involved in both the triumphs and disasters of 1941. In March the Enigma code breakers alerted Admiral Cunningham that the Italian fleet was about to put to sea. No.230 Squadron flew reconnaissance sorties partly to confirm the news and partly to provide a cover story for the impending British attack. On 27 March one of their Sunderlands found the Italians, and on 28 March Cunningham won the Battle of Cape Matapan. In contrast in April the squadron was used to help evacuate refugees from Greece during the German invasion. The Sunderlands of Nos.228 and 230 Squadrons were able to rescue just under 900 people from the Greek coast, amongst them the King of Greece and many of the senior Allied commanders. In June the squadron was given the task of administering the Dornier Do.22s of No.2 (Yugoslav) Squadron which had escaped from the German invasion of their country. This task continued until February 1942. In the previous month, on 9 January, the squadron claimed its one U-boat, sinking U-577 in the Eastern Mediterranean.
