New Museum Films

The Museum’s Deputy Curator Projects, Pete Pitman and Curator David Coxon and have recently made two new ten minute films on Victoria Cross holders. To commemorate a hundred years since the First World War the first film is on the life of Royal Flying Corps’ fighter ace Albert Ball. The second is on the life of Bomber Command’s Leonard Cheshire who commanded No 617 Squadron, the Dambusters, from November 1943 to July 1944.

The two new films will be shown with the ‘Tribute to Neville Duke’ film in the Museum’s Astra cinema.
