    Lt Walle,r H de W Death accepted 21 Feb 20
    Lt Holland, H L Death accepted 21 Feb 20
    Lt Pithey, C R Death accepted 21 Feb 20

    All three were tasked to fly from Shotwick to Baldonnel during the afternoon of 21-02-1920, with Bristol Fighters for Nos. 2 and 100 Squadrons. None of them ever arrived in Baldonnel. F/O Croye Rothes PITHY and F/O Hardress de Warrenna WALLER were on the strength of No.2 Squadron, and flying H1567 and H1621 respectively. They were presumed lost in the Irish Sea.

    F/O Horace Lloyd HOLLAND was on the strength of 100 Squadron, and piloting H1612. He was seen to go into the sea 85 miles south west of the Scilly Isles at 1635 that afternoon, witnessed by the master of the "Norfolk Range". A lifeboat was launched to try and rescue F/O Holland, but rough seas and high winds made the task impossible.

    Fg Off Parry P J Palmer John Died 11 Feb 22

    Another 100 Squadron loss. F/O Palmer John PARRY, killed when his Bristol Fighter, D7856, crashed close to Baldonnel airfield as a result of engine failure. 100 Squadron were making preparations to move back to the UK at the time of the accident. Also dying as a result of the crash was AC James HARRIS. Although the accident happened on the 10th, both men died in hospital the following day.

    F/O Parry is buried in the churchyard of St. Rhedyw, Llanllyfni, Caernarfonshire.

    ]I've got absolutely nothing on AC Harris I'm afraid, I can't even confirm he was on the nominal strength of 100. I'll keep plugging away.
