This is a history of aircraft maintenance, an essential service of the RAF throughout the war. Aircraft were often damaged by action other than enemy, they needed to be moved, serviced and maintained at all times, and even assembled from kits rather like aircraft models today. It may seem obvious, but the creation and use of a servicing branch was absolutely vital to the well-being of the RAF and the safety of aircrew, and this is the sometimes prosaic, sometimes exciting story of the ones who stayed on the ground.
