Red Baron update

The Red Baron    

Early in February this year I wrote a Blogg about the

Red Baron.

Well I just received a further bit of information, via an e-mail from the "Forces War Records" which I was unaware of.

As we all know? there has always been some argument over who fired the fatal shot.

Arthur Roy Brown a Canadian honorary captain was officially credited with the kill.

Flying with the Royal Navy Air Service.

No 9 Squadron, later the 209 squadron R.A.F.

He was awarded the         DSC.

Gazette entry date.           21/6/1918. Page 7304, for operations in the air.

Date of birth.                    23/12/1893.

Date of death.                   9/3/1944.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank, for their information and recommend them to any body seeking information on their own families war records.
