I'm not 100%, but I'm more or less sure than this was a regiment comprised of "natives" rather than white colonials ... But I am not sure that the article makes this distinction ... Am I correct in said assumption? V. Joe (talk) 22:29, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Gorges (1930) made it clear that the officers were white British, serving short periods seconded from mainland British regiments, and the NCOs and ORs were local African. There were also specialist British signallers, gunners and engineers. --Wally Tharg (talk) 10:38, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
My son who has an interest in birds of West Africa has come upon some records by a Mr Anthony H Brown. He has discovered that Brown, who was working in Nigeria from 1929, enlisted into the Nigeria Regt. I think this would have been allowed in wartime but otherwise British officers were seconded to RWAFF —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:51, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Interesting – I'm sure you're right. The complete list of officers as of 1914 given by Gorges lists the regiments they were seconded from, but of course that was in the pre-WW1 army. --Wally Tharg (talk) 10:43, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
