Title 14 assorted Royal Flying Corps photographs
Nationality British
Period c 1916

These photos, some 14 in all (only 10 here), came out of an album belonging to H. Colby (I bought them from the family and he is the one sitting cross-legged on the ground in the middle of the first group photo). He served with No. 6 Training Squadron at RAF Montrose (I also have his 'Air Board Technical Notes').

The best part of these photos show the maternity tunic in all its variations for different ranks. I imagine he photographed the pilots (with their aeroplanes) whom he served as ground crew.

There are quite a few other photos, but all of the box Brownie variety and mostly rather badly faded. These are the best.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

My husband LOVED his North Africa escape map - I had it professionally framed - it's beautiful.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
