Captain Bertram Dickson - Aviation Pioneer
THE action-packed, but tragically short, life of Captain Bertram Dickson will be mapped out in an illustrated talk at the Museum of Army Flying at 7pm on Thursday 30 March.
Captain Dickson was a pioneering Scottish airman and the first British serviceman to qualify as a pilot.
His exploits in the air, watched by Winston Churchill and Lord Kitchener, indirectly led to the creation of the Royal Flying Corps.
A curry supper is available from 6pm (vegetarian meal also offered).
