Saluting the Vanquished Foe, WW1 in the air by C Clark
A German monoplane, forced to descend with the British lines on the Western front. The plane was forced to alight owing to the tactics of the British aviators in the neighbourhood where the aerial duel was fought; the enemy machine was completely outmanoeuvred by the British during combat, and was gradually beaten down to earth. The Germans can be seen getting out of their plane and being approached by the successful airman who salutes his foe. In comparison to the war on the ground, aerial combat followed an unwritten code of chivalry and enemy airmen were treated with respect. Date: 1916
