  5. Air Force List

    I have found my uncle's service number in AIR/78/18. However the record has MILITIA typed at the top. Can anyone explain what this means? When I knew him in the 1950s he was a Navigator flying Canberras, having previously been on Wellingtons and possibly Lancasters. Many thanks. Malcolm
