Sir Alan Cobham Aviation pioneer signed Fleet Air Arm Swordfish Navy cover AK88

Sir Alan Cobham was a pioneering long distance aviator and technical innovator who became famous for his exploits in the interwar years by making aviation accessible and popular throughout the world. He learnt to fly while in the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War and later went on to set many long distance aviation records. These include becoming the first person to fly from London to Cape Town and back in 1926 for which he received the Air Force Cross, and in the same year to be the first person to fly from London to Australia and back, for which he was knighted by King George V.
