Lone Wolf of the Skies – The Life of Albert Ball VC @ Nottingham Castle
Mar 1 @ 10:00 am – Jul 17 @ 5:00 pm

Our new temporary exhibition Lone Wolf of the Skies – The life of Albert Ball VC, opens March 1st.

The exhibition remembers the life of Captain Albert Ball VC. Aged just 20 years old when he was killed, Captain Ball was one of Nottingham’s most decorated servicemen and flying ace of the First World War.  Albert joined The Sherwood Foresters when war broke out in 1914 and this exhibition explores his life and the legacy which he left behind.
