    Hi,

    as far as I know there are not available such records for WWII RAF enlistments - did not find them during my trips to TNA. But maybe some other members would have more detailed information.
    Only full RAF Service Records held still by the RAF.

    I am not sure what you mean by enlistment records for WW2 army personnel. I am aware of Tracer Cards and Muster Books, but this is all very hit and miss. The bulk of service records - for all services - still sit with the MOD, however, there are a limited number of R.A.F. records available on Ancestry and Find My Past. These cover the period 1918 - 1940, but are fragmented. The R.A.F. Halton Aircraft Apprentices Association also hold basic enlistment cards.
