R.A.F. ground crews WAR EFFORT MAIL, Jamaica postal history
In 1943 a scheme for the recruitment of tradesmen and technicians for the ground staff of the Royal Air Force was started in the West Indies. The scheme was a success and in March 1944 some 2000 West Indians were brought to England for ground staff duties in the RAF. The majority were Jamaicans but recruits from all West Indies colonies including British Guiana and British Honduras were amongst them. A further contingent of 1,935 arrived in the December and some West Indians were accepted for aircrew.
