I recently bought Upfill's military cross and a load of his paperwork so this information has proved very useful - I have ordered the combat reports for the squadron as I have details of some scraps they got in to and shot down a plane. Considering how slow the RE8 was I am surprised they shot anyone down.

Thanks everyone.

I’d love to know if there is any mention of Eric Gilbert Leake in the papers you bought (if you still have them) ... I’ve just found out he was a relative of mine who flew with Upfill before his death in 1918 - they were mentioned in dispatches together and I think were both awarded the MC for rescuing equipment when their plane crashed?
