The Association was formed on the 19th May 1995 at Shoreham West Sussex when a group of ex-RAF Firemen got together and decided to form the Royal Air Force and Defence Fire Service Association. Following on from these humble beginnings,  over 1000 old comrades have joined our ranks over the years, and we are very keen to welcome new members into the fold.
