History of the RAF
The RAF was reactivated on the 27th January 2011 after the British Armed Forces underwent major structural reforms, which brought into effect a tri-service organization of the RAF, Royal Navy and British Army as separate branches, in addition to the United Kingdom Special Forces. RAF become comprised of two squadrons.
The original RAF was formed in July '09 to provide a middle branch between the Navy and Paras. Once previous soldiers graduated from the Royal Guard or Royal Navy, the RAF helped train them to progress to the Paratroopers. However, it was later merged into the Paras for ineffectiveness.
