It seemed rather fitting that in the week before we dedicated the new WW II memorial here in Leadgate that we included the following account of a WW I soldier of 52 DLI transferring to the RAF in December 1917. The contributor of the F.S (RAF) Form 138 on which the item is based is a friend of Jack Shield who knows his (and my own) background.
We plan to scan-in the complete, original 16-page document - Royal Air Force - Training Transfer Card of Dixon Arnold Thompson, Cadet Pilot. These will appear as Images once we get good enough quality copies.
