The RAF, SUPREME, during the Falklands War.

The OLDEST Air Force in the World.


May not be the biggest or the most powerful in terms of weaponry BUT no other Air Force can even come close to its record of valor and victory.


No other Air Force can boast of anything even approaching the magnificence of the ‘Battle of Britain‘.


It is an Air Force that has never seen defeat in a war. Ah! The Falklands War!

I am so proud of the RAF. They always give me chills.

Thank YOU, RAF.

Happy Birthday.

And next year, 100 YEARS!

PLEASE join me a rousing rendition of “Rule Britannia“.

The cerebral U.K. ‘The Guardian’, as ever, makes a good point. Got me thinking. Do Catholics do anything about Remembrance Day?
