    Hi ladies and gents.

    I'm sitting here, working on a children's story (- right now: drawing), containing - among other things - a british and a german fighter pilot, and the story is set at the time of the Battle of Britain.
    And then I suddenly realise that I do know what the german uniforms, visor caps and other stuff looks like, but I haven't got the faintest idea about what the RAF gear looked like at the time! :shock: :oops: :lol:

    So I've been trying to google a bit, and I can't really find anything with any decent (read: Detailed) images of a RAF officer's visor cap at the time of the Battle of Britain, plus any detailed uniform information on such things as rank, uniform insignia and such.

    So: Have any of you guys got any good links with detailed images?
    It would be a great help, and I sure will appreciate any help here.
