RFC recruiting poster

RFC recruitment poster from 1913 © IWM PST 0553. Hamilton and Wyness typified the new RFC - founded only 6 months earlier: men who had trained themselves in aviation, transferred to the RFC from Army regiments, and who died as a result of a common cause in the early days of flight - engine trouble. The memorial is an important reminder of how untested the new science of aviation was prior to the outbreak of the First World War.
