Malcolm12hl Posted 24 February , 2022 Share Posted 24 February , 2022 Captain Barrington Chadwick Quinan was seriously injured in an air crash in Essex on 22 December 1917. He had previously undergone a long convalescence for shrapnel wounds to shoulder, hip and heal and an attendant case of shell shock suffered while serving with the 5th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force on the Western Front on 26 May 1915, and had then served in a series of staff and training positions before being accepted for flight training by the RFC in September 1917. His Canadian service record stops with a note that he was ordered to report to the RFC school at Reading on 10 September 1917, and then resumes with coverage of his hospital treatment after his 22 December crash - treatment which would be ongoing until he died of pneumonia in a Liverpool convalescent hospital on 20 July 1918. Can anyone supply details of his RFC career, and more specifically his 22 December 1917 crash? There was a brief posting on the subject back in 2009, but it did not lead anywhere.
