Handley-Page 0/400 Bomber

Thank you to Ian Hawkins for providing the photograph above.

Ian wrote:

"Here is a photo of my grandfather among about 70 other crew in front of a WW1 bomber at, I believe, Hendon Airfield 1918.

The back of the mount has been stamped in ink:

"T. R. Rodger, 39 Asmuns Pl.,

  Temple Fortune, N.W. 4"

The parts in grey have been added in pencil.

So it seems the 1856-1930 T R Rodger who came back from India in 1886 and worked for the Royals, also did some work for the Royal Flying Corps

This is a historic picture, giving a real impression of the scale of what I gather is a Handley Page 0-400 bomber.

My grandfather, Arthur Thomas Hawkins, is pictured "dead centre".  He died in 1940 when my dad was only 14.

Granddad was a 1st Lt in the RFC in 1918, according to his records in the National Archive.
