Great War- Flying Corps Ltd Ed Medallion SoG 16


Australia was the only dominion of the British Empire to establish its own flying corps for service in the Great War. Pilots trained at the Central Flying School at Point Cook in Victoria which started in early 1914 with just two flying instructors and five flimsy training aircraft. By March 1916 the A.F.C.'s first complete flying unit, No. 1 Squadron, left Australia for the Middle East and by June was flying missions with the British Royal Flying Corps over the Sinai desert in search of Turkish forces, and across Egypt's western desert to monitor activity by the rebellious Senussi. The squadron was renamed 67 (Australian) Squadron, Royal Flying Corps and while its initial role was aerial reconnaissance, its aircraft and crew were also involved in attacks against Turkish ground forces. Presented in an attractive leatherette box, it includes a certificate of authenticity and Sands of Gallipoli presentation. Only 1,000 units will be released.
