The full title was ‘The Royal Air Force Quarterly and Commonwealth Air Forces Journal’. This publication was the professional journal of the RAF, providing a forum for the development of air power strategy and tactics during the inter-war years, and also covered many other aspects of life in the RAF. Published between 1930 and 1953 for members of the RAF. Edited by Sqn Ldr C G Burge. The January 1931 issue had 192 pages with many b+w photos/illustrations and 2 fold-out maps.
Between 1953 and 1960 it was replaced by a journal called ‘Air Power’ from the same publisher. In 1961 this changed to ‘Royal Air Forces Quarterly’ (with an S in Forces), which lasted until at least 1978. The current strategic journal is ‘Royal Air Force Air Power Review’, which commenced in 1999.
