As you know, No 8 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service, was formed in 1916 on the Western Front to support the British Army. On 1 April 1918, when the RNAS and the RFC were combined to form the Royal Air Force, Naval 8 became No 208 Squadron RAF. To mark the Centenary of that 1916 formation, No 208 Squadron held a celebration on Friday 1 April 2016 at RAF Valley.
