Key Info
Ideas for use in class
  • To aide study of the experience gained by pilots during the Great War (1914-18). Receiving the Victoria Cross can reveal to students both the high regard that pilots were held and the dangers that they faced. It would make a good activity for further exploration of issues and discussion. Ideal for a compare and contrast exercise with WWI RAF in Blackadder IV episode 'Private Plane'. Futher information can be found on the 'Aces Falling' programme page: bbc.co.uk/timewatch/acesfalling.shtml.
