Casualty Card interpretation

Recommended Posts

These two men, pilot EHP Bailey and observer R Milne, 206 Sqn, were killed on a long reconnaissance on 11 August 1918.

 

I am struggling to interpret the first two words of the 'At Time of Accident Employed as...' lines on their Casualty Cards, which are the same on both cards.

 

I get 'Day Duty Long Reconn'. Any ideas as to what the first two mean? Lh: Brns: ??

Hi

I read it as "Lt" not ""h", see the "t" in Duty and in the name column.

Regards Barry.

Thanks both, I'll go with Light Bomber, they were flying a DH9.

Hi Jon_B

Having read your previous post of 30.1.2011, I think it is safe to say it means Light Bomber as posted by Steve above,  The DH9 was used as a Bomber and Fighter but then changed to Bomber and Reconnaisance/Spotting.
