A retro 1945 book about the Royal Air Force's slang words and phrases.

Over the first half of the 20th Century, the servicemen and women of the Royal Air Force created their own rich language. This remarkable book by lexicographer Eric Partridge records the meaning behind a fascinating list of slang, from Canteen Cowboys (ladies' men) to Half-Pint Heroes (boasters).

The Dictionary of RAF Slang is a funny and fascinating insight into a time gone by.
