Born in 1883. That would make him 32. A bit of an oldster compared to the other lads, isn't he? I figure career soldier. Cavalry maybe. Transfered to the air service just before the baloon went up. Sent over to France with the first bunch to go in 1914. I would take that "Rookie" out of there, though. At 32 and still a rookie Sergeant...well....we hope our boy has been a better soldier than that.
Wait a minute! I just noticed his date of enlistment. April 1915. So one month after joining up, the old codger is not only a Sergeant, he's graduated flight school, been posted to a squadron, and is already flying combat missions. Hmmm..........
Good screenies, however.
