The poll is featured on our special 90th anniversary website, “90 Faces of the RAFBF”, which features 90 stories about our history, fundraisers and supporters.
If you visit you can listen to Winston Churchill's famous 1951 radio appeal on behalf of the RAFBF, watch videos of beneficiaries and serving RAF personnel describe how we help, and learn about the enormous support we enjoy among the RAF family.

I went for Bader, but Downing is the other person I thought of, followed by Parks.

Winston Churchill may be an honorary Air Commodore, but when I think Winston Churchill, I think "Prime Minister" or "1st Lord of the Admiralty", not RAF.

I voted for Bomber Harris.

Controversial maybe these days (or has that changed again?)

Dowding ahead

Many thanks for your votes in our poll to find the most iconic RAF figure of World War Two. At the moment Air Chief Marshal Dowding leads the pack, with Bader, Harris and Gibson following on close behind.

This poll has led to some great discussion about what constitutes an iconic figure, and plenty of debate about the merits of certain candidates, so we have decided to leave the poll open until the end of the year.

Please do cast your vote if you haven’t already, we would love to hear your views.
