I recommend this reference work for those interested in the RAFSC. A very useful publication showing an accurate depiction of the role.

Great for the Railway Strollers.

This one has a few more armament factories and not quite as many elephants.

Ahhh so my initial assumption that the RAF Sent in un-trained Airmen to slit the throats of Fokker Wolf 190'sand ME-109's using nothing more than a "Commando" knife is utter fantasy.... Bugger....

They did not receive commando training - that was the point that I was trying to make. This has been discussed on here before, but re-enactors will persist with their commando/airborne/etc. fantasies.
They serviced planes.

Will you now accept that as proof?

First hand account from a chap who saw action as RAF Service Commando, including some details of Commando Training School and the perils of having to wear RAF blue in a combat zone

A bit more than servicing planes..m
