Aviation Cadets, 1918

These First World War cadets were training to be pilots. This photo was probably taken in the spring of 1918 at the Central Flying School at Upavon. It comes from an album kept by Cecil Paice, the man in the back row, third from the left. Paice was killed in a flying accident on June 4, 1918 and is buried at Upavon Cemetery.
