    Default RAF Staff College Middle East?

    Hello all;

    Would there have been an RAF Staff College in the Middle East in the early-mid 1930s, or was there just one in the UK?

    TIA

    Paul was correct initially in that before WW2 many RAF officers attended the Army Staff College in Quetta, India but I think the earthquake in 1935 damaged it bringing courses to an end.

    The RAF only had one Staff College in the Middle East, opened in 1942 and closed in 1946.

    I have a copy of its history for future reference
