Extract from Bedfordshire Times and Independent - Friday March 30th 1917:

Fatal Accident to Flight Lieut.
MELVILLE ALLEN.

Bedford learned with deep sorrow and regret last week on Wednesday, Lieut. Melville Richard Agnew Allen of the R.F.C. (Royal Flying Corps) only son of Mr Richard Allen and grandson of Mr W.H. Allen had met with a fatal accident while flying near Ipswich. There were few young men so popular and beloved as Mr Allen in Bedford, where his bright and sunny disposition will long be remembered. It was only about six weeks ago since he flew from King’s Lynn to Bedford, and his arrival and descent was watched by large numbers of townsfolk. He was an instructor and an intrepid aviator.

For his high character and good nature he was regarded with the greatest affection by the family, and held in the highest esteem by his many friends and the firm’s workspeople. In August 1915 he married a daughter of Major Lightfoot of the Bedford Depot.

At the inquest on Saturday at Ipswich it was stated that when Mr Allen was flying at a height of 150 feet and was ascending, the engine stopped and the machine crashed to the ground, Mr Allen succumbing in a few hours to the injuries he had received. The stoppage of the engine was due to too much or too little oil; the engine was all right just before the flight.
