100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE ROYAL AIR FORCE

1918-2018

Three NEW Ensembles issued by popular demand following the sell-out of our four  highly restricted Limited Editions (each having only 25 hand-numbered copies). Each of these three NEW commemorative Ensembles contains the Original Autograph of a significant, carefully chosen combat pilot to represent the celebrated and courageous wartime flyers of RAF Fighter and Bomber Commands. 

Between them, these three highly decorated WWII pilots were awarded no fewer than 10 decorations for gallantry, including the Victoria Cross. Each symbolises the history and courage of RAF Fighter and Bomber Command aircrews since the Service was inaugurated in 1918 – one hundred years ago. 

We anticipate strong demand for these three New Commemorative Editions, which will be withdrawn at the end of the RAF’s 100th year, or when limited stocks are sold – whichever comes first. So to avoid disappointment please order soon!
