Historical information

This photograph shows how the Flying Angel club room was once used.

The photograph is part of a serie likely to have been taken by Bill Doyle (Reverend C.J. Eldridge-Doyle), who was a keen photographer like many of the chaplains as he often uses the Ilford paper to print his images.


Dancing was permitted by Padre Oliver in 1932 under strict rules.
