Museum Completes Three Films On First World War VC Holders

The Museum’s Deputy Curator Projects Pete Pitman and Curator David Coxon have now completed three short films on Royal Flying Corps pilots who were awarded the Victoria Cross during the First World War. The films feature Albert Ball, James ‘Jimmy’ McCudden and Edward ‘Mick’ Mannock. All three were killed during the Great War with Ball and McCudden achieving fame as scout pilots during the conflict. Mannock, however, was little known outside the RFC when he was killed in July 1918. His achievements as a fighter pilot and leader were finally recognised in 1919 after a petition had been raised. All three films are now being shown in the Museum’s Astra Cinema.
