Competition between R.A.F. Halton and The London Clubs in 1927
The Alwyn Greenhalgh album from whence these photographs come states that the occasion was at Halton BUT from an article written by Noel Barker it seems possible that the venue was Wimbledon Common. Would The Royal Air Force ever have allowed the grass to become so unkempt?
There are numerous well known enthusiasts in this picture. Alwyn Greenhalgh supplied a separate overlay to aid identification
One of the Halton contingent launches his aircraft. One or two more well known figures in this picture!
