Title:
Air Ministry: Air Member for Personnel and predecessors: Airmen's Records
Description:

This series contains service records for airmen of the Royal Air Force (RAF) who served during the First World War.

PLEASE NOTE: AIR 79 Piece numbers 1 to 3043 inclusive: Electronic images of these records can be searched online through our partner website.

Note: Some AIR 79 records are noted as 'Record Not Available'. There are two reasons for this. Either the individual was commissioned from the ranks and his RAF airmen's record no longer survives, or the airman served after the late 1920s and in many cases into the Second World War and his record is still retained by the Ministry of Defence for business and administrative purposes. In the case of those men who were commissioned, their records may be in AIR 76. The records of those airmen whose service continued into the 1930s and 1940s (where a record of service survives) will be transferred at a later date.
Date: 1901-1944
Arrangement:

The records are arranged in service number order and by name of airman.
