World War I Downloadable Resources

These resources are available free to download and support classroom learning on the subject of World War I.  These resources were inspired by our exhibition, “Dowding and WWI: The Making of a Commander” which explored the World War I experiences of Royal Flying Corps (RFC) pilot Hugh Dowding, who later became Commander-in-Chief of RAF Fighter Command at Bentley Priory during the Battle of Britain.

This exhibition and accompanying activities were made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
