Admiralty: Royal Naval Air Service: Registers of Officers' Services

This series consists of service details of officers serving in the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) between August 1914 and April 1918, when the RNAS merged with the Royal Flying Corps to become the Royal Air Force. Described at item level.


They appear to be arranged in service number order rather than alphabetically or by the date of entry into the Service. Each volume however contains an alphabetical index to officers whose details are within each volume. It is also possible that certain individuals may have more than one entry in the registers.
