About The RAF Heraldry Trust aims to catalogue the heraldic badges for every RAF unit (squadrons, stations, regiments, etc.) both past and present.
The Royal Air Force Heraldry Trust cover
Description The definitive hand painted pages will be housed as a permanent record in RAF Cranwell's Library, where it may be consulted by interested individuals and organisations, for both educational and research purposes.

The RAFHT’s aim is to preserve the heritage of the RAF which is otherwise in danger of being lost as the members of older squadrons pass away and the risk that their badges are forgotten or lost.

The badges are repainted by heraldic artist, Mary Denton BA (Hons), on to goatskin parchment paper using 23.75 carat gold leaf and gouache paints which have an excellent resistance to fading. Each page is finished with calligraphy recording all the badge’s details, including a dedication specified by each sponsor.

With just half the paintings completed, with your help, we are aiming to complete the entire collection in time for the RAF's 100th birthday in April 2018.
