Help find the missing heroes of World War I

The Royal Aero Club needs your help! It’s looking for photographs of World War I pilots, to complete its impressive archive. It has details of around 200 early flyers whose pictures are missing – perhaps you could take a look and see if you recognise any of the names?

In the early days of the War, most pilots took their initial training through the Royal Aero Club, before joining the Royal Flying Corps or the Royal Naval Air Service. Successful pilots were given an Aviator’s Certificate. Like a modern passport, this flying licence needed two photographs – one was pasted into the licence; the other was kept by the Club. for more click here
