    Default RAF Awards Database

    Hugh Halliday has quite a few threads in this section with Awards to the RAF - Pretty much everything other than DFC and DFMs are listed I guess. with the most complete DSO Listing in one of the old archive forums.

    I have taken a liberty to process these lists into my now standard database format.. the DB is now available at http://www.rafcommands.com/database/awards/

    Ofcourse its not complete (With exception of DSOs). but it tells us the possibilities that can happen

    (Full Credits to Hugh for publishing these lists)

    If there are other data lists out there that can be shared - please do let me know

    Thank you

    Hi Jagan, thank you it is great idea!
    I have checked the DB and to my surprise I have found there also Czech awards.
    I think there is one thing we should correct - Czech Gallantry Medal was the official name and there was no other medal like Czech Medal for valour which I suppose is Czech MV.
    So Czech MG = Czech MV and should be listed as Czech MG.
    There are some more details in my 311 Sq book which I can provide and also there is a special TNA file for Czech awards to allied AF members which can be added into this DB.

    I just used Hugh's lists that exist on the forum. i will fix the award designation.

    A quick check against wikipedia gives me the following numbers. Dont have the CBE/OBE/MBE numbers. Or the foreign awards like the French, US , Polish and Czech. Are there any other awards that should be tracked? . Overall there may be over 50,000 awards, service numbers and citations to be tracked. I am sure the M-in-Ds will be tens of thousands as well?. The current DB has just over 8000 names i there...
