First World War
Andreans Who Served in Air Forces

This is a listing of Andreans who served during the First World War in the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS), Royal Air Force (RAF), United States Air Force (USAF).

On April 1st, 1918 the RFC and RNAS joined to form the RAF. Unfortunately the 1919 Memorial Issue of The Review lists most as having served in the "RAF", so those for whom the specific air service is unknown, are listed under the Royal Air Force.

Note that the Canadian Air Force was not formed until 1920 and on April 1, 1925 became known as the Royal Canadian Air Force.
