From Huntingdonshire Heroes of the First World War by John Bell ISBN 0 946965 21 8. Letter about Commander Day's last dog fight..

March 1917.

Dear

I regret to inform you that Commander Day fell in action on February the 27th. last.

He was shot down by six German aircraft which he attacked single handed out to sea.He had out distanced his flights, I think because he wished to break the enemy's formation in order to make it easier for the less experienced people behind him to attack.

He hit the enemy and they hit his machine which burst into flames but not a bit flurried him and he nose dived, flattened out and landed perfectly on the water.

He climbed out of his machine and waved his fellow pilots back to their base; being in aeroplanes (not sea planes) they could not assist him.

An immediate and prolonged search was made for him but in vain.

With deepest sympathy,
H.

From Huntingdonshire Heroes of the First World War by John Bell ISBN 0 946965 21 8. Letter to Miss Knights about William.

B.E.F. France,
May 21st 1917

Dear Miss Knights,

Your letter of the 17th duly reached me today and believe me I cannot tell you how sincerely sorry I was to hear that Sergeant Knights had died.

Perhaps you would like to know that he had earned a reputation for bravery and coolness amongst a little band of N.C.O's and men in the Naval Division trench mortars.

I was not commanding the Battery when he was hit but I heard about it from the Battery Commander who was hit the same day.

There was to be an attack that morning near Arras and the Germans had a strong post near our lines.

This battery was therefore given the task of knocking out the post. After they had done all they could Sergeant Knights was hit.

The position was very exposed and as there was no proper communication in the trench (that ground had recently been taken), Sergeant Knights was bandaged and remained in the front trench until nightfall.

He was then carried back to the dressing station where we were told he might probably lose his arm. That is all I know except that one of his friends got a letter from him before he left Prance saying he expected to go to England any day.

He must have died very suddenly.

All his personal effects were sent to the Officer in charge of Records as soon as I heard he expected to be going to England. This officer will forward them to you.

We officers realise what a great privilege it is to command such fine men as Sergeant Knights and join with you and his messmates in deeply mourning his loss.

Very sincerely,

Cyril A Lynch
O.C.M.T.M.B.
