Canadian Royal Air Force Roundel Fridge Magnet
Canadian Royal Air Force Roundel Aluminum Sign
The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) is the air and space force of Canada. Its role is to "provide the Canadian Forces with relevant, responsive and effective airpower". The RCAF is one of three environmental commands within the unified Canadian Armed Forces.The RCAF traces its history to the Canadian Air Force, which was formed in 1920. The Canadian Air Force was granted royal sanction in 1924 by King George V to form the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1968, the RCAF was amalgamated with the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Army, as part of the unification of the Canadian Forces. Air units were split between several different commands. The Royal Canadian Air Force has served in the Second World War, the Korean War, the Persian Gulf War, as well as several United Nations peacekeeping missions and NATO operations. On November 1921, the Canadian Air Force was presented with the Blue Ensign of the Royal Air Force to fly as their own. Lord Trenchard himself arranged the privilege. The other commonwealth countries also adopted this ensign. This lasted until 5 July 1940 when the RCAF was authorized to introduce the maple leaf into the roundel in place of the red centre. At this time the roundel on the ensign was so revised. Aircraft flown by RCAF personnel, however, continued to wear the RAF roundel since their aircraft including those built in Canada all came through RAF channels. On 19 January 1946 the suggestion of A/V/M George V. Walsh was accepted officially and RCAF aircraft began to wear their own markings. This roundel is still worn today by aircraft of the RCAF, RCN Fleet Air Arm and Canadian Army. The roundel is a blue ring, surrounding a white area in the centre of which is the red maple leaf.
Perfect for all pilot, aviation enthusiasts or military personnel that want to show their passion for the Canadian Royal Air Force, this Novelty Round Sign looks great on a wall at home, garage, office, workshop, Man cave, private roadways or anywhere you feel you deserve a special decoration spot. The colors contrast beautifully on this beautiful emblem or roundel as I should say. For any guy, this is the ideal gift to add style and show their pride.
