MartinWills Posted 30 January , 2018 Share Posted 30 January , 2018 I recently came across a brief account of a British aircraft being shot down on 6 March 1917 by a German aircraft. The aircraft in question suffered broken wings and spiralled down. British troops on the ground reached the aircraft which I assume was a two seater as one man was shot through the head and another died in the crash. A second aircraft managed to get away and I do not know it's subsequent fate or whether it survived. The incident happened somewhere near Ablain St Nazaire and took place "towards the evening" - though presumably in daylight. Can anyone turn up more details and identify the aircraft, Squadron and the men involved? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
