The service came into being at the end of the First World War, formed from the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. The RAF name became synonymous with dedication and courage during the Second World War, when it defended the country against German invasion during the Battle of Britain. In the years since, it has always risen to the challenges of the twenty-first century, playing a vital role in recent conflicts and tackling terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. It also plays a crucial role in supporting civil authorities through national emergencies and providing disaster relief, living up to its inspirational moto – 'Per Ardua Ad Astra' or 'Through adversity to the stars'.
