Happy 90th Birthday for the Royal Australian Air Force

Formed as an independent arm 31.03.1921. The 4th largest air force in the world at the end of WW2. The attached photo shows my great uncle Frank (at left) with his crew under the wing of their Bristol Beaufort bomber.

Loss of a Squadron

on April 3rd this year, RAF 42(R) will be disbanded. here is its history:

Formed 1 April 1916 from crews of 19 Squadron Royal Flying Corps at Filton, 42 Squadron spent the First World War flying reconnaissance sorties. Using BE2s (and later RE8s), the squadron spent time on both the Western Front and the Austro-Italian Front. On returning to England after the war, the squadron was disbanded at RAF Netheravon on 26 June 1919.

On 14 December 1936 ‘B’ flight of No. 22 Squadron RAF was expanded into a new No. 42 Squadron.[1][2] In 1939 No. 42 Squadron was based at RAF Bircham Newton. Initially the unit was equipped with Vickers Vildebeests before re-equipping with Bristol Beauforts in January 1940. The squadron operated also a bomber unit in the Burma campaign flying Blenheims during 1942 and as a fighter-bomber unit flying Hurricanes during 1943. The squadron disbanded on 30 June 1945 but on the following day 146 squadron was renumbered to No. 42 Squadron and flew Thunderbolts.[2] The squadron fought on with these until the Burma campaign ended and thereafter the squadron disbanded on 30 December 1945 at Meiktela.

On 1 October 1946 254 Squadron at RAF Thorney Island was renumbered to No. 42 Squadron. Equipped with Bristol Beaufighter, it was a strike unit in RAF Coastal Command until disbanded on 15 October 1947. On 28 June 1952, No. 42 Squadron was reformed, flying Avro Shackletons in the maritime reconnaissance role.

The squadron converted to Nimrods in April 1971.[2][12] Disbanded as a front-line unit in October 1992, it was later reformed as No. 42 (Reserve) Squadron at RAF Kinloss, Moray, taking over from No. 236 OCU as the Nimrod Operational Conversion Unit (OCU).[14] The squadron flew its last Nimrod MR.2 flight on 30 March 2010, and is now being disbanded on April 3, 2011.

Is this railway eagle authentic please?

Attachment 191928Attachment 191929Attachment 191930Attachment 191931
I have seen this eagle for sale but the detail is softer than I was expecting. It has been drilled through the top mount pads and has cast in GAL MG SI F13 (maybe?) 28"x15"
Any thoughts appreciated.

Need help! regarding a K98 bayo with matching scabbard and frog!!!!

Hello guys, this set IMO looks 100% original. But i would be glad to hear what you have to say. There are some experts out there noticing even the finest detail, which i could never notice my self :rolleyes:
Especially the rivets and stuff :)
The frog is salty but for 140 euros (for the set) i think it is ok.
Thanks in advance.
