Lt Vincent Waterfall

Journal by ruprect

Lt Vincent Waterfall, the first British pilot to be shot down, and his navigator Lt Charles George Gordon Bayly (both 5 Sqn RFC) are buried this day; their Avro 504 (serial 390) was shot down by German ground fire.

No 2 Sqn RFC chased after a German Albatross - the first recorded incident of an enemy aeroplane being spotted and pursued by the RFC. Lt Strange fired at the Albatross with a Lewis gun which had been hastily (and unofficially) mounted to his Farman.
