This practical and accessible guide shows how to explore British air forces - and ancestors who served in them - through the wealth of material at the National Archives and elsewhere. Thoroughly revised and updated, it covers air forces as varied as the Royal Engineers Balloon Section, the Royal Flying Corps, the RAF and WRAF, Fleet Air Arm, Glider Pilot Regiment and Royal Naval Air Service, in campaigns spanning the Boer War and two World Wars to Korea, Kenya and Suez. Written by a military specialist who served in the Fleet Air Arm, it considers all aspects of air force records, from operational record books and unit war diaries to individual service records, medal rolls, gallantry awards and casualty lists.
William Spencer has been the military specialist at London's National Archives since 1996. He served in the Fleet Air Arm for 13 years, including active service with 848 Squadron in the South Atlantic, and holds an MA in War Studies from the prestigious Department of War Studies at King's College, London. He is the author of the bestselling Medals: The Researcher's Guide (The National Archives, 2006), Family History in the Wars (2007), and two other flagship titles for the new series, Army Records and First World War Army Service Records (2008),
