To start the many celebrations of the centenary of the Royal Air Force, the finest of their various bands have been gathered together in this unique album at a special price. The general collection of recordings, new or never before released commercially, includes such famous works as Goodwin’s Squadron 633 as well as tuneful marches and arrangements for military band of British classics; this is a must-have. Formed toward the end of World War I in April of 1918, The Royal Air Force is the oldest independent air force in the world. Since its formation, the RAF has played an important role in British military history, particularly during World War II where it fought its most famous campaign, the Battle of Britain. Today there are five active RAF military bands, comprised of 177 professional musicians who attend events around the globe to represent and support the RAF.
