On 1st April 2018, the world’s first independent air force – the Royal Air Force celebrates their 100th Anniversary. RAF Marham delved into their old photo archives, selecting photos of 51 Squadron Royal Flying Corps, engine fitters and aircrafts such as Fe2b and the Wellington Bomber. As part of the RAF Centenary celebrations, these photos have been breathtakingly colourised, bringing these special historical moments to life.
Since retiring, my Grandad – Roy Arthur Sharp, has been writing his life story. It may have taken him 20 odd years to complete but he got there in the end! He is always full of stories and with us all living busy lives remembering them will be difficult, that’s why documenting family history is important. It was a pleasure to turn his life story into a printed book, for him to hand out to our family so we can share and refer to those moments for years to come.
