Pembroke Dock’s role in 100 years of the RAF.

A Special Exhibition, 30 March 2018 – 8 September 2018

This new Special Exhibition at Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre will celebrate the men and women who served in Pembroke Dock and have contributed to the first 100 years of the Royal Air Force’s story.

During the First World War, on 1 April 1918, the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service were amalgamated.  The Royal Air Force was a new service independent of both the Army and the Navy. For nearly 30 years, Pembroke Dock was an important front line station, and it has played a vital role in the Royal Air Force story.

The Exhibition will open on Friday 30 March and will continue until Saturday 8 September 2018.  The Heritage Centre will open Monday to Saturday, 10.00am until 4.00pm. The Exhibition will feature one special Sunday opening, on 1 April 2018, the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force.

To celebrate the individuals who came to Pembroke Dock from all over the world, to undertake a variety of important roles, we have selected ten stories representing the men and women of many nations, represented by their uniform.
