Harry Ridgeway of Aylesbury Invitation Flying Club, 1975

This photograph was taken in 1975 to celebrate the 50 years that Harry Ridgeway, president of the Aylesbury Invitation Flying Club, had kept pigeons, his first one being given to him by his father at the age of 14.

He told us that ‘pigeons will always be in my blood’.

Our photographer was apparently surprised when he turned up at the flying club expecting to see some planes!
