Artefact of the Month
This beautiful photo is the latest item to be added to our online archive. The stern-faced little boy on the left grew up to be Pilot Officer Hugh Henry-May, who served at RAF Kenley with No.3 Squadron and lost his life on 10th May 1938, when his Hawker Hurricane stalled on the final approach to the airfield. The driver of the pedal car is Hugh's brother Roy, who became a Major in the Royal tank Regiment and was mentioned in dispatches in November 1945. Both men are buried in St. Luke's churchyard, Whyteleafe.
