WW11 RAF uniform

Can anyone confirm that the uniform cap with the white flash worn by the chap on the right hand side
signifies bomber command/aircrew please. Many thanks in advance.

Not really - so far as I can find from Google, if we are talking during WW2 then the white stripe on the forage cap indicates air crew under training. See and especially the last entry.

We featured your query in our December issue and a reader has written in to say: the white flash signifies that he was an officer cadet, not necessarily for flying duties.
