Findmypast.co.uk has just published more than 181,000 records of every serviceman enlisted with the Royal Air Force when it was created on 1 April 1918 as follows. The records contain vital information about your RAF ancestors, such as:
- Job in the RAF (trade classification
- Date and terms of enlistment
- Rate of pay
The men included in these records originally joined either the Royal Flying Corps or the Royal Naval Air Service. These organisations were merged to form the RAF in 1918.
We are working with Ted Beard and Kevin Asplin to bring you these records.
