Our Mission

The Foundation’s mission is to provide a focal point for recording, preserving and promoting the history, and achievements of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force from its formation in 1924 up to the present day. This includes:

  • Maintaining the Force Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire.
  • Maintaining the Force Roll of Honour at the Royal Air Force Church of St Clement Danes in London.
  • Maintaining a pictorial pageant of the Force’s history and arranging for its display at suitable locations.
  • Promoting awareness of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force and its history through this website.
  • Arranging for an annual ceremony at the National Memorial Arboretum to dedicate Memorial Stones and reflect upon the Force’s past and recent history.
  • Seeking and maintaining an archive for noteworthy documents and memorabilia.
  • Establishing links with like-minded organisations.
