    Origin Story of the RAF Hymn

    Origin Story of the RAF Hymn

    For more than a century, the RAF hasn’t had its own hymn. With music being such a core aspect of life in the military, it’s quite fitting that during the year of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this has finally changed. Our correspondent Flt Lt Mark McKinstry spoke with the people who made this happen.

Very Enjoyable

I loved my time in the Royal Air Force and to be able to reconnect via the podcast is great. Episode 4 was fantastic and clearly listening to CAS the Force is now a very inclusive and progressive organisation compared to my time. Thanks

💙 RAF

Currently serving as a reservist and although I’ve been in for three years I have learnt so much more thanks to InsideAir. I would highly recommend to the past and present serving personnel or those who are interesting in joining. Or even to those who just have a love for the RAF.
The extra at the end, Name That Noise and Reheat is a great additional feature too.
Keep up the good work Media Reserve Squadron.
