First World War Fowlmere

Officers and their guests at the Fowlmere sports day, 1919.

Fowlmere is a village close to Duxford. An airfield was built there during the First World War.

It was closed and demolished in the 1920s, but re-opened again in the Second World War as a satellite airfield, an extra base for aircraft.

Can you spot the different uniforms in this photograph? What do you think is going on in the background?
