BGGC in 1957….

Chris Edwards and Ken Brown have unearthed some cine film of HRH Duke of Edinburgh visiting Nympsfield for a flight in an Eagle in 1957 (about a year after the club moved to Nympsfield), you can see it on the “History” page or on YouTube

Interesting to see the lack of trees on the North Ridge, and from the winch launch looks like they were flying on a nice rough NorthWesterly day!

Peter Scott is seen helping HRH with the parachute – see if you can spot any other club members !
