First World War airmen records now searchable by name (UK)

The service records of the first 320,000 airmen to serve with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and its forebears are now searchable by name following the conclusion of a successful cataloguing project. Staff and volunteers at The UK National Archives have added full names to the service numbers listed in the AIR 79 series, containing the records of airmen who served in the First World War. Previously, it was only possible to search the index of airmen on microfilm in the reading rooms at Kew
