Horatio,

thanks, indeed Spenser Grey, who went in July 1917 on a month's sick leave, and was replaced by S GOBLE, DSC.

Regards,

Cnock

CNOCK, nothing on C/O 5 Wing RNAS, but find here one (among many) of awards for services ;

COLLETT Ralph H DSC Flt.S/Lt. RNAS 85T038 No. 5 Wing

Vice Admiral Dover N/E N/E

R.N.A.S. Officers - 03.09.16 Promoted Flight Lieutenant

Bombing raid on Ghistelles Aerodrome on the 3rd September, 1916.

He showed great pluck and determination in continuing his flight after being attacked by a Fokker, and getting his machine out of control.

I am new to this web site, so be patient. I notice that a couple of you have mentioned Flight Commander Spenser Grey DSO. I am trying to find any details on this person. I am doing research for the Ulster Aviation Society and i would like to include Grey in a small display on Irishmen in the RNAS. If anyone can help or advise me where i can get any details please let me know.

I think you mean Reggie MARIX. The Fleet Air Arm Museum have a great deal of material on him in their RNAS Biographical Archive. research@fleetairarm.com

Hello Ray,

Me too am looking forward to find more or additional info onto Cdr Grey, DSO who was born in Brazil.

Have you more Brazilians in RNAS air service in WW1? What his link with Ireland?
