is a list of the 74 Australian airmen who shot down 5 or more enemy planes
during WW1. I believe the list to be complete but be aware that not all of
these men were AFC.
Hundreds of AIF men and other Australians joined the
Royal Flying Corps (RFC) or the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) which was
actually bigger than the RFC.
Many served in more
than one arm of Service. Many served in BOTH the AFC and the RFC.
were in the RFC when it became the RAF and others were with the RNAS when
it became the RAF. Some were in the AFC but flew in RFC or RAF
- Those marked with an asterisk earned
their ranking while serving as observer/gunners, not pilots.
