We are taking to the air this week in Sepia Saturday as we celebrate FLIGHT. On one level this is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Flying Corps (suggested by Sepia Saturday contributor, Little Nell), but on another level it can be any type of flight : the flight of machines, the flight of birds and insects or simply the flight of fancy. My image is not of the Royal Flying Corps but the Australian Flying Corps and it features Captain Charles C Matheson (left) and Lieutenant C R Fenwicke, both of No. 3 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps (AFC) beside their RE8 aircraft (picture from the Australian War Memorial Collection via Flickr Commons). Whatever type of flight you take, please be at the Departure Gate on or around Saturday 14th April 2012.
Everyone seems to like the idea of having plenty of notice of future Sepia Saturday themes, so here is the updated rolling programme of future themes:
