    Default Air Ministry - RTP?

    Morning all

    Does anyone know what the department known as RTP in the Air Ministry was? I think it had some sort of R&D role

    TIA

    Hi Snapper,
    I to not know if this was a department of the AM. I have the abbreviation RTP as Recruit Training Pool.

    No - definitely not recruit training pool! It was a research department
