This volume of appendices is the seventh and last part of the official history of the RAF in the Great War, and provides a wealth of detail. Information found here includes correspondence (memoranda) between British war leaders both military and political on a variety of subjects such as bombing Germany; a separate Air Service; organization of the Air Services; lists of squadrons of the RFC, RAF and Naval Air Squadrons which served on the Western Front with dates, types of aircraft and roles; order of battle and deployment of all RAF units on the Western Front on the day of the Armistice, 11 November 1918. A Statistical Section provides production figures, personnel and aircraft strengths, casualties, hostile air raid statistics, details of Britain’s anti-aircraft Defences; numbers, types and deployment of guns etc and much more. One interesting statistic: the strength of the RFC on the outbreak of war in August 1914 was 2,073; in November 1918 at its end the figure was 291,175 (by then it was the RAF).
