Manskap från 1:a skvadronen i RNAS i slutet av 1914

The Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) var Royal Navys flygstridskrafter 1912-1918.

Royal Air Force[redigera | redigera wikitext]

RNAS slogs 1918 samman med Royal Flying Corps till Royal Air Force. Flottan fick under 1920-30-talen lita till RAF för flygunderstöd, något som med tiden visade sig vara otillfredsställande. I slutet av 1930-talet bildades därför Fleet Air Arm.

Militära grader i RNAS 1918[redigera | redigera wikitext]
