By the late 1920s civil aviation was moving from being a public curiosity to a practical means of transport and recreation. The First World War was the catalyst for technological advances that, in a decade, took the aviation world from the flight of Bleriot across the English Channel to high performance fighters such as the Sopwith Camel. The war machine produced designsers and engineers whose wartime experiences found a new mode of expression in the production of commercial aircraft for peacetime needs-- and one of the leading players was Geoffery de Havilland. He established the de Havilland Aircraft Company in September 1920. Rapid expansion from its Middlesex base saw production of aircraft under license in various countries, especially of the Moth series of biplanes.
