The nurses of the Royal Air Force have cared for the sick and wounded of the three Armed Forces since the creation of the RAF Nursing Service in 1918. In 1923 Princess Mary, daughter of King George V, gave the RAFNS her royal patronage and the Service was renamed Princess Mary's Royal Air Force Nursing Service. Their war role was to nurse patients prior to evacuation from the battle zone. During the Cold War this role evolved to include in-flight nursing.
