The Few.

Recommended Posts

Seems 1st April was the anniversary of the formation of the RAF in 1918, by the amalgamation of the RFC and RNAS. They faced a critical test in 1940, when a British rarity of advanced planning and organisation, AND radar; allowed Fighter Command to defeat the Luftwaffe, and a possible invasion of these Islands. A stroke of real luck, that we had competant folk in the right place at the right time - unlike the shambles of today. :roll:

The Germans had to establish air superiority, in order to establish tempory naval superiority, to facilitate an invasion (Operation Sealion). :wink:
