South Carlton Memorial

The aerodrome at South Carlton was used for WWI pilot training between 1916 and 1920.

The remains of some World War I buildings still exist at South Carlton, albeit they are on private land. One famous squadron based there was the Australian 69 Squadron, which later served in northern Europe as 3 Squadron AFC. Famously they received the body of the German flying ace the Red Baron and officiated at his funeral.

A memorial plaque to the RFC and a decorated pulpit can be visited in St John the Baptist Church at South Carlton.
