A Great, Useful Book for Wading Through RAF Expressions
14 April 2018
I've been reading/researching the Battle of Britain and the RAF for a project I've been working on for a while but often get stuck on words and expressions that are immediately familiar with people who have studied and read such stories - whether fact or fiction - but not so much with someone like me who is delving into this part of history in depth recently.
This book has helped to recognise and understand the slang/colloquialisms that I've come across when reading the accounts of The Few who fought in those crucial battles and increased my enjoyments and understanding of what's what in the RAF, where the slang/expressions originated and where they are used today. Now, I have the book handy when I'm reading through my growing collection of RAF/World War II reading matter.
