City Livery Aero Section Challenge Trophy
The trophy, a large silver cup, was presented on behalf of the Guild in 1974 by its chairman, Victor Ercolani. He was also the long standing chairman of the Herts and Essex Aero Club. Victor was the brother and partner in business of Lucian Ercolani, the founder of the Ercol furniture company, and he himself was a noted TV cabinet maker. Victor's nephew was Wing Commander Lucian Brett Ercolani DSO*, DFC, Hon D.(Des) and was a Wellington pilot during WWII; his actions are well documented.
