    Default Sgt Davis, 56 Sqn Gauntlet 7 July 1937

    Hi,

    On 7th July 1937 a 56 Sqn Gauntlet, K5298, burst into flames while on a flight near Snodland, Kent. The pilot was able to bale out.

    On looking through The Times I found a couple of lines that stated Sgt Davis baled out of his aircraft after it caught fire. He was badly burned around the head and face. No aircraft type or Squadron is mentioned.

    Can anyone confirm he was the pilot of the Gauntlet?

    Thanks,

    Alex
