Playing tracks by

The Squadronaires, The Western Band of the Royal Air Force, The Andrews Sisters, Bud Zillus, The Central Band of the Royal Air Force and more.

This week's Legion Weekly looks at the work of fellow Service Charity, The Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) which can trace its origins back to 1929. The RAFA's equivalent fund raising activity to the Poppy Appeal is the Wings Appeal which takes part in mid September every year. The reason for this is the Battle of Britain which took place for nearly four months in mid 1940, following the fall of France.
