A superb image showing a young child on his push along bi-plane helping to raise funds at a Fletton United charity football game at the time of the Great War. The date of the game is 28th February and the venue was Brotherhoods Sports Ground.

The charity, St Dunstans, was founded in 1915 by Sir Arthur Pearson to provide rehabilitation, training and lifelong support to those blinded in the First World War and continues today as Blind Veterans UK.
