Artist's Description

The Great War Display Team (GWDT) consists of up to 10 replica WW1 aircraft including 4xSE5s, Sopwith Triplane, Sopwith Pup, Fokker Dr.1 Triplane, 2xJunkers CL.1s, and a Nieuport 17.

The SE5As flying with the Team are 7/8ths replicas but handle and perform just like the real aircraft. Three are in the markings of 24 Sqn RFC and the fourth in the markings of 25th American Pursuit Sqn, which operated ex-RFC SE5As. One of the RFC aircraft is flown by Doug Gregory who is now 84 years young, and is the only member of the team to have done this for real, flying Beaufighters, Mosquito and Spitfires in the Second World War and earning himself a DFC in the process!

Lancing College Chapel is the largest school chapel in the world – the height of the nave is 90ft to the apex of the vault.

The outstanding feature is the Rose window, dedicated by archbishop Coggan in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales, in 1978 – At 32ft in diameter it is the largest in England.
