The First World War in the Air A Casualty Form

The Royal Air Force was created at the end of the First World War in 1918. In just 4 years, the Royal Flying Corps had proved the need for a permanent independent air service to protect the UK in what had been the first time that air power was used for military purposes.

The RAF Museum ensures that all the inspiring stories of exceptional RAF personnel throughout the last 100 years are told; from the ace fighter pilots to the hard-working engineers.

In 2014, to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we are transforming our Grahame-White Hangar at the Museum in London as well as developing a First World War Exhibition at Cosford. We want to tell the story of the First World War in the Air and we need your help to finish the job!

Please help us by making a donation to support our work on this project. Donate today and help us tell more inspiring stories.

You can make a donation of any size and it will make a real contribution to our creation of the Exhibition.

If you share our vision for promoting this important time in RAF history and would like to make a more significant donation, please contact us to discuss how your gift could transform our project. Major donors will be offered the opportunity to witness the building of the Exhibition first hand.

Thank you for your support.
