Another Shoreham man

Hi one and all

Can any one help with this man?

He was wounded in 2nd Ypres and then went to a flying school at Hendon 

Transferred to the RFC and served with 25 Squadron and then took command of 29 Squadron.

Came to Shoreham 10-3-1919 to command S E A F I S

He left the service soon after.

Anything on him would be good

Thanks

Tim

There are two Charles Dixon's RFC service records at the National Archives.

Presuming we can discount Charles Penrose Dixon that leaves just this one who could be your man? http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1168778

BUT - please check before spending any hard earned cash on it!

There are 2 CH Dixons. Cecil Hargreaves killed 1917 and Charles Herbert. So be careful with records.

 

Charles Herbert was ex KOYLI and MC, I think.

I've filtered out the Cecil Hargreaves refs I think so this is what airhistory.org gives for Charles Herbert; gives you a lot to follow up.

His Casualty Form (which is not referred to in airhistory) gives the following, incl noting DFC 1919.

the 26/3/17 record shows he was 2nd Lt, Temp Major, Squadron Commander, MC,  at the age of 23. Good going.
