JENKINS William Edwin [Eric]
Second Lieutenant, 60 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps and East Surrey Regiment. Killed in accident 23rd November 1917. Age 19. Son of Edwin and Annie Jenkins, of Poplar Hall, Fen Ditton, Cambs. Buried in TYNE COT CEMETERY, Zonnebeke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Plot XLVII Row D Grave 13.

Born 9th July 1898 at Rushden, Northants. East Surrey Regt. and 2nd Lieutentant RFC. Royal Aero Club Cert. No. 4414, 14th March 1917. To 60 Sqn. RFC April 1917; this Squadron was one of the most prestigious scout squadrons in the Corps. Jenkins served in B Flight, commanded by the New Zealand 'ace' Capt. K.L. "Grid" Caldwell; another flight commander during Jenkins' period of service was the famous (but now arguably infamous) Canadian "Billy" Bishop VC. Jenkins was promoted to Lieutenant during summer, 1917, and by the time of his death had been credited with 10 victories; 1 balloon destroyed, 3 aircraft destroyed (2 shared), 6 aircraft out of control (4 shared). He is therefore an 'ace'. He was killed in a mid-air collision with another SE.5a of his formation (2nd Lieutenant M. West-Thompson also killed), both aircraft crashing near Poperinghe. (A propoganda film made during 1917, called something like "Our Heroes of the Air" featured 60 Squadron and the film contains a shot, often used in modern WW1 television documentaries, of a group of 60's pilots, with Caldwell and Bishop at the centre. Jenkins is at the left-hand end of the group.)
