Our purpose is to assist in raising the profile of the Corps with the General Service Community and the public at large by providing a focal point for the collection of artefacts and documents appertaining to, and acquired by, the RAF Regiment and its Associated Forces. The Heritage Centre will be the main exhibition area to display and preserve the story of the Regiment’s history and provide a learning resource.
Aircraftman 1st Class Robert Quigley MM
By early 1943 the RAF Regt units which had landed in North West Africa, as part of Operation TORCH, were well established. They had been allotted to RAF fighter and light bomber Wings, defending advanced landing grounds.
One such unit was No 2744 Field Squadron which, together with No 4091 AA Flight was responsible for the airfields at Bône and Souk el Arba defending No 324 Fighter Wing.
