Royal Flying Corps

A group of Royal Flying Corps Cadets at Bathing parade. Hastings and St Leonards billeted many service men for training during WW1. This interesting 10 minute BBC documentary provides an insight into the town during those days.

The original was taken at White Rock Gardens, Hastings and published in the Hastings & St Leonards Pictorial Advertiser on 6th September 1917.

The two photographs used to create the image, and the final combined image are below. You can view the top image full size on my Flickr page by clicking on it.

This image is part of a continuing series of Then and Now images I’ve created for East Sussex Council’s World War 1 commemoration website. The website is focused on the contribution that the men and women of East Sussex made towards the war effort.
