British aviators Captain John Alcock (1892-1919) and Lieutenant Arthur Whitten Brown (1886-1948), made the first direct transatlantic air crosing in a Vickers-Vimy aircraft in June 1919. They shared a prize of £10,000 which was awarded by the Daily Mail at a celebratory luncheon at London's Savoy Hotel. Souvenir paper napkins similar to this one were produced for the event.
