Seeking information on Stanley James Payne, RFC

I have good records about this individual born 16 October 1880 in Weston-Super-Mare up to mid-1915 and then little (apart from his continued promotions in The Gazette) and the record of his Belgian Croix de Guerre until his death from pneumonia on 3 March 1919.

He served in the Somerset Light Infantry from 1900 mainly in India until the formation of the RFC when he joined as a Sergeant.  He rose up the ranks to Major, commanding Ascot Aircraft Park, Central Aircraft Repair Depot at Lympne, and 5 Aircraft Acceptance Park. 

I believe he married Winifred Daisy Bull on 25 September 1912 and had a son Stanley James and a daughter Doris Winifred.

Grateful for any information about his life after mid-1915, and his family.  Thank you.

Thanks, I was aware of 3 but have only found the first mention in 22 June 1915 Gazette.  I don't know what the other 2 were for.  I have the service record from National Archives (AIR 76/394/209).
