George Lyons Sergeant 3 RFC Chocques, Flanders April 1915
Twentieth mission Friday April 30 PM...A sad day for our squadron: 2nd Lieutenants Jem McAully and Todd Stanley were killed today as their aeroplane burned out. I noticed their plane leave the flight (led by 'Bay' and Reinard),
and it looked like they landed well, however, they must have been on fire and I could not see it. Our recce flight went over the lines and made our patrol not knowing their fate. On the way back, I spotted what I thought were two Aviatik crates
...however, they were two of ours upon further inspection.
Our hearts are heavy for Jem and Todd. They are the first, and hopefully last, deaths for our squadron since I arrived. A dreary way to enter May.
