The Royal Flying Corp was formed in 1912, three years after the Navy's Royal Naval Air Service. WW1 really was the birth of modern warfare in the sky. Air Aces became national heroes. Everyone loved a Pilot. In early 1918 the Royal Flying Corp became the Royal Air Force and was removed from the control of the army. Of course The Battle of Britain in 1940 made the Royal Air Force into legend. As Winston Churchill then said: ""NEVER IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN CONFLICT HAVE SO MANY, OWED SO MUCH, TO SO FEW""
This is a truly beautiful Sterling Silver Swear heart Broach displaying the Pilot's Cap Badge of King's Crown over "RAF" amid spread wings. Silver Hall Marks to rear, almost 2" in width.
