Captain Liddell V.C., WW1

Captain John Aidan Liddell of 3rd Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and the Royal Flying Corps who won the Victoria Cross after safely flying and landing his reconnaissance plane despite suffering severe wounds half an hour earlier. Pictured here being helped out of his plane after landing. On 31 July 1915, while flying reconnaissance over Ostend-Bruges-Ghent, Belgium, Liddell was severely wounded in his right thigh. This caused momentary unconsciousness, but by great effort he recovered partial control of his machine when it had dropped nearly 3, 000 feet and succeeded, although fired on, in completing the course and brought the plane back into the Allied lines. The control wheel and throttle control were smashed as was part of the undercarriage and cockpit, but the machine and life of the observer were saved. Liddell died of his wounds a month later at De Panne, Flanders, Belgium, on 31 August 1915, aged 27. Date: 1915
