Not badges I regret, but a request for guidance. Does anyone who has an interest in the RFC and the early days of the RAF have any links to any sort of forum dealing with the history of the two organisations and their personalities? I'm trying to help a retired Wing Commander RAF who has a long-deceased relatives who flew and fought in those services a century ago. Thanks. Mike
