Searched and searched but no luck.

Is there a list somewhere identifying the pilot pictures from the game?

Thanks,

If you mean the ones you can select when creating a pilot, short answer is no list was made, of course someone with time on their hands may have since made one out there..

Thanks Pol.

Yes, it was the RFC pilot photos that held my interest. I hope someone actually tracked them down.
I was specifically curious about RFC Pilot6 pictured below. He bears some resemblance to E J Y Grevelink of 54 Squadron but it's tough to know

It would be an interesting study. Maybe the person that assembled them will pipe in here and comment.

Direct input would be fantastic. In the interval, I'm thinking about starting a "Who are these men?" thread. Actually, there should probably be four separate threads for Britain, France, Germany and the USA.

There are a few better-known faces in the crowd...

Below L to R: Lanoe Hawker, Reginald Warneford, William Leefe Robinson -- all VCs.

Thanks Raine. So that Photo of Toby was Warneford. I especially like that one. Great pictures all three.

JFM,

You're 100% right, but that should be no surprise to anyone familiar with your expertise. They looked a little similar but the ears (and lack of VC ribbon) should have been a giveaway. Thanks for the correction.

Thanks JFM. I'm going for it so I'll move this to the "Pilot Identity - RFC" thread.

He does look like a Toby, don’t he?

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
