Captain Brown's Historic Despatch Posting in the Gazette

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this has been posted here before or how many of you have seen it, but I ran across this document again last night when I was organizing some of the WW1 files and folders in my computer. It is the June 21st London Gazette posting of Roy Brown's bar to the Distinguished Service Cross for his downing of von Richthofen. I find it rather poignant that one of the most defining moments in the aerial history of the Great War, (as well as one of the most debated), was noted in such a nondescript and humble fashion. Very British.
