This is an original official Air Force List which is a fascinating snapshot of the RAF at the commencement of WWII. It lists the commissioned officers and warrant officers of the RAF, RAuxAF, RAFVR and other related personnel . The whole work is referenced by a nominal index to make it easy to track down the details of individual officers.
During WWII, the classified official lists were often destroyed on receipt of the periodic updated version and consequently genuine early wartime editions are rare. It is a invaluable book for reference and research purposes as well as being an interesting piece of RAF memorabilia.
