If one is a stickler for the correct use of old fashioned English then calling the RAF Regiment the 'military' arm of the RAF is quite correct. The term 'military' applies only to the Army hence Military Aviation = AAC. Perhaps more telling is the Naval and Military Club in London formed in 1862. Clearly the Military are diferent to the Navy and thus also different to the RAF.
