Radnorshire, Knighton, Visit of Gustav Hamel - pioneer aviator - on 29th August 1913.

Knighton is a market town in Powys, historically in the county of Radnorshire in Wales.

Gustav Hamel was the son of a german doctor (Gustave W. Hamel), and in 1910 the family became british subjects. For this reason, Gustav Hamel is always quoted as being a british aviator. Gustav Hamel visited Wales to display his aircaft on several occasions, including a visit to Llandrindod Wells.

Sadly, in the May following the above photograph being taken, Gustav Hamel was lost in the English Channel on a return flight from Paris - he was aged just 24.

The above image is kindly shared with us from the collection of Mr. Peter Lloyd, whose family history can be traced directly back to Knighton in Radnorshire (now Powys). Peter's Great Great Grandfather - William Henry Lloyd - was Knighton's first ever photographer in the 1850's.
