I've just read that the RFC was expecting 100% pilot casualties within the first few weeks of war, as the result of accidents and enemy action, and so the Squadron commanders were told to ensure that no pilots flew as observers. Clearly, this was not adhered to, but has anyone else come across details of such an order ?
