100 Years of the Royal Air Force

RAF BadgeOn 1 April, 2018, we will celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is the UK's aerial warfare force, which was formed at the end of WWI on 1 April 2018. It emerged as the largest air force in the world, and has since played a significant role in British military history, particularly World War II when it fought its most famous campaign, the Battle of Britain.

The RAF is working with communities and individuals up and down the country to create a programme of RAF100 event, some of which we've listed below. It's a growing list, so be sure to return to see what's going on iny our area.
