Countdown to Peace – an exhibition for WW1

29 days until Armistice

Today we feature: Reg Marix visits Radley, 1914.  After leaving school, Marix joined the navy and was appointed a flying officer in the newly formed Royal Naval Air Service in 1913.  In 1914 he flew his Sopwith Type D, 3 Seater over to Radley – the first aircraft ever to land on the pitches – and took the Warden, Edward Selwyn, for his first flight in a plane.
