9th April to 4th May - Exhibition - Those Magnificent Men

William Chambers, an electrical engineer by profession, served in the Great War as a photographic reconnaissance officer with 49 squadron in Kent.

His work is a remarkable testament to the precarious nature of early flight, and the brave men on both sides who took the war into the air.

We are pleased to welcome back 'Those Magnificent Men' a series of images reproduced from the original negatives of William Chambers by local photographer David Lewis.
