Quote of the week

The RAF was a comparatively tightly organised, high tech force, by and large with more modern equipment and operational command techniques than the Navy, and more so the Army. One consequence was that they were able to collate and distill information fast for their own purposes.

The upshot was that they had more up to date PR to hand on a regular basis.

I totally agree with all of the reviews posted here. This is truly an educational read and will assist me greatly in choosing which branch of the services I want to join when I leave school.

Is that you CR ? Admin Wing want to know when your application for transfer will be forthcoming. Do not forget all of our pilots are Officers !

I am sure an arrangement could be made for you not only to return to proper flying duties but additionally for tou to retrain as a RAF Int & Sy practioner - may take some time though as our standards are quite exacting !
