23rd May 2005 at 13:19Just seen the sad news on the passing of 'Smiler Marshall', see the thread "one of the last true heroes passes on". Sadly the numbers of people with direct knowledge of the First World War grow inevitably fewer.
Maybe its time, before its too late. to amass as much remaining knowledge as possible. What personal - first, second or third-hand, memories do you have, of the people and their flying machines, aircraft still effectively in the first decade of powered flight?
What would you most like to see as a lasting memorial to these heroes?
