    Of associated, but not direct, interest is that F/O Harold Aspen, killed at Detling on this date, had previously served in the RFC, and had survived the ditching of H-P 0/400 J2259 in the Irish Sea on December the 17th 1920. Allegedly being operated by 100 Squadron at the time of the ditching, Aspen was flying as the Wireless Operator. After the ditching and subsequent recovery of all the crew by a civilian steamer, all of the crew remained tight-lipped about the reasons behind their flight and where they were going. 100 Squadron were based at Baldonnel at the time.
