Valour or Myth: The Great War Aviation VCs reappraised.
18 Mar

About the talk: In this talk, John looks into the background of the VC-winning deeds which shot their aviator recipients to enduring fame and eternal glory. How many were genuinely a case of exceptional derring-do and supreme valour, or were more a matter of being in the right place at the right time?

About the speaker: John Gilder is a lifelong aviation nut, who regressed into a chartered surveyor. He is a popular vice chair of the NW Kent branch and is very active within the Shuttleworth Collection. His aviation talks are always well-received, as he is both enthusiastic and surprisingly well informed.
