This Roll of Honour lists the men and women who enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in Western Australia for World War II service and died as the result of that service.

The Roll has been colour coded to illustrate the distribution of RAAF Aircrew Members by attachment to other Air Forces’ units as the result of Article XIV of the Empire Air Training Scheme. The names of RAAF Members who died while serving in RAAF units are shown in BLUE, in RED for those attached to RAF units and in GREEN for those attached to RCAF, RNZAF, SAAF or IAF units under the Article.

The Roll is recorded on 11 Plaques affixed to the eastern wall of the Undercroft of the State War Memorial, Kings Park, Perth. The Plaques were unveiled on Sunday 6 November 1955.

A total of 18,615 men and 3,345 women enlisted in Western Australia for service with the RAAF and 976 became casualties as recorded in a 1948 report. There are 1,121 names on the Memorial as a number of those who enlisted from the State were not considered long-term residents.

The names of the following four Airwomen are remembered on two separate consolidated Women’s Services’ plaques which also remember Servicewomen from the Australian Women’s Army Service (AWAS).  The WAAAF was formed on 4 Februray 1941.

This Roll of Honour shows the names of Airmen and one Airwoman who enlisted from Western Australia but whose names have not been included on the Roll displayed on the State War Memorial.  All qualify for the National Roll of Honour.
