The Uniform Collection (Temporarily Closed for refurbishment.)


The large Uniform Collection, only part of which can be on display, includes examples of practically every RAF, WAAF and WRAF uniform item ever issued, together with medals, rank and trade badges as well as the highly prized aircrew brevets.

The Dress Uniform and other items belonging to Air Chief Marshal Sir Augustus ‘Gus’ Walker, wartime station commander of RAF Pocklington, are on display.

As the Allied Air Forces Memorial, it is appropriate that the Yorkshire Air Museum’s collection also includes uniforms and badges of Commonwealth, French Air Force and other airmen who fought alongside the RAF during World War II.
