The Royal Air Force is the oldest independent air force in the world, proud to serve as the UK’s airborne arm, alongside the other two key military forces – the Royal Navy and the British Army. Founded during the last few months of WWI in 1918 by Lord Trenchard out of the original Royal Flying Corps, the RAF initially comprised the Air Battalion of the British Army’s Royal Engineers amalgamated with their naval equivalent the Royal Naval Air Service.

The RAF played a pivotal role during WWII, operating at its peak during the conflict from many fronts and deploying over a million service men and women, during which its most famous campaign, the Battle of Britain, has made it a worldwide legend.

Post World War II, the RAF has also played many parts and is still a formidable peacekeeping force, now operated mostly from its 60 bases in the UK, although four long established overseas bases are still fully operational.
