The last couple of years there has been no specific RFC group at Kelmarsh, rather various members of a number of groups in RFC kit. These have included the Vickers Machine Gunners Society 1914-45 of which I'm a member, the Birmingham Pals and the 10th Essex, who quite often field a number of RFC flying and ground troops as required.

Correct - basically, apart from doing the flying for the displays they weren't doing anything living history wise.

Define "Society" :lol: - I will be there attached to the 10th Essex doing their machine gunning for them as I have been for the last couple of years, but I will probably be the only VMGS there in kit (occasionally a few VMGS members have visited in civvies). We haven't done it specifically as a group for at least four years now.

It's not Dreadnought is it? :!: (makes sign of cross) - otherwise sure, look for the young speccy soldier sporting MGC shoulder titles (and probably Corporals stripes and Domino patches, depends if I can be bothered to sew them back on :lol:) .

Daniel, if you're interested in doing RFC let me know - I do a lot of RFC stuff (I spent most of Kelmarsh as an Air Mechanic, RFC) as well as 7th Leicesters, tend to lean over to RFC mostly now as away from living history i'm studying aviation and work on/fly historic aircraft. Here's a couple of shots from a previous event we did at the RAF Museum Hendon
