Filthy Fifth Posted 11 November , 2013 Share Posted 11 November , 2013 Can anyone tell me which squadron(s) this famous holder of the first UK pilot's licence and pioneer of aerial photography served in or commanded during WWI ? My father was a sergeant observer and aerial photographer (in RE8s heaven help him) and told me that Brabazon was his CO. Father died in 1971 and left a whole heap of photos of the trenches, Zeebrugge, portraits of individual pilots (most in their parent regimental uniform and doubtless the source of a bit of pocket money!), British airships in flight and crashes - some horrendous and others funny. I passed the bulk on permanent loan to the RAF museum at Cosford; apart from the personal ones and a couple of amusing and obviously non-fatal prangs (which I will get my IT advisor - aka daughter - to post for your amusement next time she's here). He joined the RFC in 1915 from the Royal Engineers and features on the first RAF nominal role in 1918. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
