RAF Feltwell in World War 1

 Page 1

These photographs were kindly donated to Feltwell Museum by Mr Michael Denney of Hockwold in 2006. They originated from his Great Aunt Hilda Rowell who served there during the 1914/18 war. She held the rank of sergeant and was in charge of a section of RAF women. She drove a Trojan Chain Drive Ambulance. Sergeant Rowell was sister to Mr Denney's grandparent William (Bill) Rowell who was a wheelwright in Hockwold, as well as a builder and undertaker. Hilda's mother also lived in Hockwold at Wiiton Cottage, South Street. Her brother Richard Rowell also lived in Hockwold and worked with William Rowell. Her sister, Nell King, was the wife of Harold King the miller from Feltwell.

Chris Cock believes that these are the rarest photos of the RFC /RAF we are likely to see.

Please be aware that some of these photographs are very large files.


The painted sign on the Oak Hotel reads, "Headquarters No7 Training Depot Station Royal Flying Corps."

They must have commandeered the Oak whilst the station was being completed.
