Archive of Wilfred Taylor 1916-1918

WORLD WAR ONE: Royal Flying Corps

Two small notebooks, seven drawings and four period photographs of Air Mechanic Wilfred Taylor. Taylor joined the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) in 1916. The first notebook is titled W Taylor Royal Flying Corps. 1916. 43296 and contains notes of Cable Splicing and 19 annotated pencil drawings of contemporary British, French and German aircraft. Each aircraft is named with the engine type and its HP rating. The second notebook dated 1918 and is titled Royal Air Force. The quality of the 16 drawings has improved markedly from the first volume. The aircraft are similarly annotated. A particularly appealing image illustrates a Martinsyde Scout seen in flight over a pastoral landscape. The photographs include a full length vintage portrait of Taylor. Collections of the pre-history of the RAF are rare.
