Vignettes from the Sketch-book of an undistinguished Sopwith Camel pilot in the winter of 1917-18

Vignettes from the Sketch-book of an undistinguished Sopwith Camel pilot in the winter of 1917-18. This is reproduced in the appendices, together with a list of the many aircraft he flew in his RFC and RAF career between 1917 and retirement in 1946. No 65 (Fighter) Squadron was formed in August 1916, initially as a training squadron, and flew to France in March 1917, in time to play a prominent part in the air operations during the Battles of Arras. In June 1917, the squadron moved to Calais for special patrol work in the Dover Straits area, to intercept enemy aircraft raiding England.

These books do not glorify war. They stand as a testament to the human spirit within . They stand as a testament to the human spirit within the futility of conflict. Just a heads up for those of you not used to reading war memoirs or have a very sanitized view of the War: it’s a tough read because of its frankness. The descriptions of the German schu mine damage, along with lost limbs and the screams he heard during the fighting bring home the fact that war is not glorious.

Image caption World War One soldiers often swapped identity discs and ID bracelets with their best friends, which led to mistaken identities if they were killed. In 1914, Pte Alfred Holland's wife received a telegram from the War Office and a letter of sympathy from Lord Kitchener. Some prisoners of war were kept in France and Belgium illegally as slaves close to the front line. The Germans couldn't admit it was happening so wouldn't fill in the paperwork," Mr Bilton says.
