This part of the RAF is often forgotten about, but played an important part both during and after the war, that is until various governments kicked the silent out of both it and other auxiliary forces.

I have just found a reference to R.Aux.A.F. squadrons and RAF Sylt. I am just waiting for permission to use it as a link as it does seem to be copyright.

Any former members of the Auxiliary Forces out there with stories to tell??

I was in the RAFVR. I joined the County of London Security Sqdn
based at Adam & Eve Mews, Kensington High Street, London.W8,
at the beginning of 1962. My trade designation was RAF Police.
Although far removed from the 'snowdrops' seen around bases I did have the full uniform. The work was counter intelligence and the RAF's involvement. In the event of a crisis we could have been sent anywhere but Aden was often cited in exercises. The annual camps I attended were spent at Geilenkirchen in Germany and Akrotiri in Cyprus. We also spent frequent weekends at various V bomber bases. The Treasury finally forced the RAF to disband the unit and so we were released in Feb 1964.
