George Phillipeatroux, February 25, 1918 Issoudun. Phil stood about 6 feet 2 in his stocking feet, as an amateur comedian he had no peer, and he was as likeable a fellow as they make them. He had only finished his instruction at this school a few days ago, but because he was one of the best flyers that we have ever had, he was given the position as tester vacated by Kickland, a Frenchman who was killed a short time ago. Phil, while flying a 15 at the height of 2.000 ft. was seen to go into a spin and crashed to the ground on the “Reveller” field. He is the second to go in two days, and the entire camp is sad and gloomy”

Moving had begun by 1:P.M. of the same day – two hours time. We believe this quick decision and action is a most striking example of Capt.

“A.H. Wilson, February 23, 1918 – Issoudun. A.H.” as we always called him, was one of the finest fellows I have ever known. Although not inclined toward athletics, he was a good sport and a mixer. He was a musical genius playing classical music on the piano with perfect expression and technique. Morally he was perfect and a gentleman through and through. While making his second tour de piste in the 18 meters, he fell into a nosedive on his turn and crashed to earth being killed instantly. A.H.” leaves us all thinking of him as one of the very best that they have in this world”
