Badges & Uniforms of the RAF

The Royal Air Force may be the youngest of the three armed services but its near century-old history ranks amongst the finest annals of our national heritage. The sacrifice, skill and bravery of those who have worn 'light blue' in many forms are legendary.

It is therefore vital that the tens of thousands of men and women who have given the RAF its world-renowned reputation should not be over-shadowed by the aircraft they have flown in or supported on the ground. The uniforms and insignia so proudly worn by members of the RAF and its predecessor, the Royal Flying Corps, as well as by the WRAF, RAF Reserve and Auxiliary Services, Air Training Corps and the little publicised Royal Observer Corps, deserve a definitive work. Fortunately Malcolm Hobart has skilfully addressed this deficiency. Badges and Uniforms of the Royal Air Force is a vital work for militaria collectors and all those with a particular interest in the history of the RAF and aviation.
