Album of black and white photographs relating to No.52 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps in France during the First World War. Most of the photographs show scenes on the ground including a German artillery position in Bourlon Wood; war damaged buildings in Douai; Douai railway station; Valenciennes railway station; part of the RFC airfield at Aulnoy; war damage in Armentieres, Bailleul and Meteren and a nice portrait photograph of a two-seater crew about to undertake a flight. Also a number of vertical and oblique aerial photographs of Venice and one of the BE2c fuselage that formed the crew compartment of a SS Class airship.
Brown cloth covered album with blue and white paper label on front cover 'With 52 Squadron RFC BEF'. Album pages are sewn into album (the first and last pages are detached). Prints are glued to album pages with captions handwritten in ink on the pages. There is evidence that three prints have been removed from the album. The loose prints carry no annotations. One print is badly damaged having split from being folded.
