RAF100 and Living Legacies 1914-18

On 1 April 2018, the Royal Air Force will celebrate its 100th anniversary.

In partnership with RAF100 in Northern Ireland, Living Legacies is developing a programme of engagement activities with RAF Cadet Squadrons, through taking a closer look at military aviation sites which were used during the last century.

These 'defence heritage sites' represent a significant cultural legacy, but at present, their archaeological record is poorly understood. 

To assist RAF100, we have developed a series of resources for Cadet Squadrons to use, working closely with the Historic Environment Division (HED) of the Department for Communities (DfC).

The programme will roll out over the next six months, with cadets involved with fieldwork using surveying techniques, photography and data recording. 

For more information please visit the Living Legacies 1914-18 RAF100 webpage.
