http://lists.csua.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gzg-lAt the start of WW2
doctrine was to rely on nearby Army units for airfield
defence, the trouble was that there wasn't always a nearby unit and they
kept getting borrowed for other things so the RAF Regiment was formed to
provide airfield defence against ground and air attack.

yup, basically they're there to defend airfields and forward
of the harrier and stuff like that.
Wasn't the RAF Regiment created for airfield security? I haven't
bothered looking them up, but assuming that's the case, it seems like a
specific reason rather than encroachment to me.
