Special Duties List (1920-1939) by date of appointment


From time to time RAF personnel are appointed to posts which fall outside the normal organisational establishment of the service and in order to keep track of them they are placed on the Special Duties List (SDL).  Such postings include appointments as Air Attachés, exchange posting to overseas air forces, loans to foreign governments and service with other government departments.

The list below shows those officers who were placed on the SDL between April 1920 and May 1939 in date order of their appointment
