We’ve just published the nominal roll of Royal Air Force servicemen who were with the service when it was formed on 1 April 1918.
This collection contains records for more than 181,000 men and can tell you vital information about your RAF ancestors, including:
- 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.
