RAF Regiment

Created in 1942 and tasked with airfield defence. At the start of the war its strength was 10 regular squadrons and 5 Royal Auxiliary Air Force squadrons. Each squadron has a strength of 166 members (making them the equivalent of companies but considerably larger – they are however incapable of independent deployment). Each Field Squadron is divided into flights (equivalent to platoons). These are Rifle Flights (intended for close range combat) and Support Weapon Flights (with 81mm mortars, ATGMs, SF GPMGs and sniper rifles). In 1996 with the threat level increasing, Light Armoured Squadrons were recreated using Scimitar and Scorpion series vehicles with Spartans in the APC role. Most Field Squadrons had a motorised element in Land Rovers capable of ranging up to 40km from the base in patrol operations. Air Defence Squadrons had a strength of 6 Rapier missile launchers.

They are frequently known as Rock Apes. Commonly thought to refer to Gibraltar the nickname instead refers to an incident in the 1950s in Aden when two RAF Regiment officers went out hunting local baboons (nicknamed rock apes). Splitting up one shot the other, in the board of enquiry he was asked why he had fired, he replied that in the light, his friend had looked like a rock ape. This took very little time to reverberate around the RAF and the nickname stuck.
