Chivalry: Stories of the Royal Australian Air Force (Publication)

---- We open most Fridays from 5 pm. Everyone is welcome. ----Along with the many other things the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) does, it produces a range of publications for educators to use in schools, the public and of course, service and ex-service members.

One such publication produced primarily for students by the DVA in conjunction with the Australian War Memorial is "Chivalry".

In its 56 pages, it provides a historical review of the evolution of the contemporary RAAF from the Army Flying Corps in 1914 to today. RAAF members tell their stories and the publication is chock full of excellent photographs and  images of badges, medals, and a variety of military artifacts.

As an ex-RAAF service member, the editor found it very interesting and informative. He learned much that he didn't know about the junior service despite having read widely previously.

Chivalry can be read online HERE or downloaded as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file HERE and printed. Copyright permits reading/downloading provided it is used for non-commercial purposes.

Have a read when time permits and write a comment below to tell us what you thought of the publication.
