Leslie William Osman enlisted in the 1/28th London Regiment, commissioned into the Rifle Brigade 7/7/16 into the 17th RB then the 2nd. Transferred to the RFC 27/5/17. He suffered a gunshot wound to his left arm on 14/7/17.

Can any of our air war buffs tell me the circumstances of his wounding??

Many thanks

Hi

 

TSTB II, page 102 has him on an Offensive Patrol in a Sopwith Pup of No. 54 Sqn. when WIA.  No other details.

There is a newspaper article here describing the incident-  antiaircraft fire.

Also a Hospital Admission record for this.
