    The argument has gone on almost since 1st April 1918, when the Royal Flying Corps became the Royal Air Force.

    Is the bird on the shoulder flashes worn by non-commissioned RAF personnel an eagle or an albatross?

    After many years of research and scouring mountains of ornithology literature I can now tell the world that it is in fact an Iranian Vulture …
