Hi All
 
Does anyone know the cause of death of Lt S Fine and 2 Lt Robert A Fraser of No 15 Sqn on 18 May 1918?
 
All the best
 
Malcolm

Malcolm,
 
According to Hobson's 'Airmen Died in the Great War 1914-1918':
 
Killed while flying in RE8 C5047 on the Western Front.
 
'Killed while flying' indicates a flying accident'.

Hi Malcolm,
Here are a few more sad details about this crew's loss that day: they were on Artillery Patrol at the time, in heavy rain, and were seen to go out of control in a spinning nose dive, and then crash.  The aircraft was wrecked in the fire which followed.
This comes from the RAF Casualty Report.
Hope this is useful,
Regards,
Trevor
