Use of Aeroplanes by the 1st Battalion, Egypt, June 1933
In June 1933 this series of photographs was taken of the 1st Battalion training with aircraft in Egypt. Air transport was ruled out, at the time, as an impractical way of moving troops. The limited capacity of the aircraft, with only a handful of troops being accommodated at anyone time, meant that troops would continue to be moved by ship.
Only a proportion of our collections are on display at anyone time. Certain items are on loan for display in other institutions. An appointment is required to consult any of our collections which are held in store.
