Today I spent a couple of hours in the Research Department at the RAF Museum in Hendon. While we still didn’t manage to find out the elusive answer to question – why Charles Lewry was awarded the AFM – we have unearthed some new material. Leafing through bound copies of Longside’s monthly journal, The Battle Bag, I came across a mention of the 101 hour record and also found a photograph of Captain W K Warneford (shown here in the centre of the front row). The photograph shows him as percussionist of the Longside Aero Orchestra. It’s fantastic to be able to at last put a face to this fascinating man. Thanks to Peter Elliott and his team for all their valuable assistance.
