About The Poster: This poster advertises an exhibition held in the ticket hall at Charing Cross Station in the London Underground. The exhibition highlighted the story of John Clark's flight with the BEA (British European Airways) with photographs and a model of the airplane.

Published in 1922, Just William is the first book in a series of children's short stories called William Brown Books, written by Richmal Crompton. The books were adapted into a television series, films, and even a radio show. John Clark was the first actor to star as Just William in the first two series of the popular BBC radio programme (some 61 episodes in all) from October 1945 to March 1947. He also starred in the first Just William stage play and became the first William on TV.
