Warneford VC large

Warneford The Nation's Hero

An exhibition telling the story of Flt Sub-Lt R Warneford. In 1915 he was awarded the Victoria Cross and the Legion d’Honneur for his heroic exploits defending the nation from the Zeppelin threat. He was the people’s hero.  At one of the darkest hours of the First World War, he attacked and, single-handedly, completely destroyed a Zeppelin in mid-air. His actions had given the Home front a reason to believe the Zeppelin threat could and would be overcome.
