Knights of the Air: Social Identity in the Royal Flying Corps

Hometown: Louisa, Virginia

Department: History

Advisor: Frederick Corney

Going into the First World War, Britain had a rigid social hierarchy influenced by the Industrial Revolution and imperialism. As the newest branch, the Royal Flying Corps had extensive training that initially influenced recruitment. My thesis will focus on investigating the role of social identity in interactions between different Royal Flying Corps personnel.
