Captain Liddell Piloting His Aeroplane Down into The British Lines After Being Seriously Wounded.


Captain Liddell Piloting His Aeroplane Down into The British Lines After Being Seriously Wounded.

While on a flying reconnaissance over Ostend, Bruges and Ghent, on July 31st 1915, Captain John Aidan Liddell of the 3rd Battalion Princess Louises Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, was severely wounded, his thigh being broken. For a moment he lost consciousness and dropped nearly three thousand feet, but by a great effort he recovered partial control, and, though in a state of collapse, succeeded in completing his course while being continually fired at. He brought the aeroplane into the British lined half an hour after being wounded. Apart from his personal injuries, the difficulties experienced by Captain Liddell in saving the machine and the observer were very great, as the control wheel and throttle control of the machine, and also one of the under carriage struts, were smashed. For his most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty, Captain Liddell was awarded the V.C., but unfortunately died of his injuries.
