The Glasgow Herald - January 13 1940 "Honorary Rank in RAF cases for the duration of hostilities the grant of honorary rank in the Royal Air Force, the RAF Reserve (including RAF Volunteer Reserve), the Auxiliary Air Force, and the the Auxiliary Air Force Reserve will cease and all officers who have been granted such rank will relinquish it forthwith, states an Air Ministry announcement in the 'London Gazette" last night.
