Air Force historian Martin James said that since the awards’ inception, the Air Force has published historical works of national significance, acknowledging the service and achievements of veterans.

“Air Force has a responsibility to its members, past and present, as well as future generations, to ensure we capture significant events of Air Force history and personal endeavour,” James said.

The winner of the last RAAF Heritage Awards, hosted in 2018, was former Flight Lieutenant Bob Grandin, who published the winning piece in 2019, Answering the Call: Life of a Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam.
