On 31 March 1921, one hundred years ago, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) was formed. Initially just the Australian Air Force, the ‘Royal’ prefix was approved by King George V in June. The Australian Air Force officially became the RAAF on 31 August 1921. (Ref: Virtual AWM website). Apparently, Richard Williams (Father of the RAAF) asked for the Gazettal date to be changed from 01Apr1921 to 31Mar1921 to avoid the ‘April Fools’ Day’ precedent set by founding of the UK Royal Air Force on 01Apr1918.
