Marshal of the RAF

This rank is held for life. He would almost certainly be a peer, baronet or knight.

How to Address the Marshal of the RAF

The recommended social style of address is as follows (if a peer):

Beginning of letter Dear Lord Blank
End of letter Yours sincerely
Envelope Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Blank, GCB
Verbal communication Lord Blank*
Invitation Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Blank
Joint invitation+ Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Blank and Lady Blank
Description in conversation Lord Blank (or The Marshal of the RAF)
List of Directors or Patrons Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Blank, GCB
Place card Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Blank

*A younger man, or a more junior officer in any of the Armed Forces, addresses him as 'Sir'.

+ Note: Traditionally, invitations to a married couple, when sent to their home address, are addressed to the wife alone, with both names being inscribed on the invitation card. It has become increasingly acceptable, however, to address the envelope with both names.
