EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph from the turbulent era of World War I, we find a young and eager pilot, Lieutenant George Arthur Hyde, MC, of the Kings Royal Rifle Corps and 54 Squadron Royal Flying Corps, taking on his first job as an aviator. The image, titled "I think I've got a sitter here," was likely taken as a light-hearted moment amidst the intensity and danger of the wartime skies. Hyde, with a confident and determined expression, dons his flying gear, including his chaps, a type of protective padding worn over the legs of early aviators. His goggles rest on his forehead, and his hands are poised on the controls of the rudimentary aircraft, an aeroplane that seems almost dwarfed by the vast expanse of the sky behind him. The plane's engine roars, ready for takeoff. The photograph, with its humorous caption, offers a rare glimpse into the daily life of a pilot during the Great War. It is a poignant reminder of the courage and determination required to take on such a dangerous and groundbreaking role, as well as the levity and camaraderie that helped pilots cope with the challenges they faced. Lieutenant George Arthur Hyde's first job as a pilot was a significant milestone in his life, marking the beginning of his journey in the skies. This photograph, with its enduring charm and historical significance, serves as a testament to his bravery and the indomitable spirit of the men and women who served during World War I.
