Death of an airman 100 years ago

My thanks go to Keith Edmonds for bringing this article to my attention. I am pleased to be able to remember British pilot, Joe Bamford, who went missing from the skies over Salonika 100 years ago today:

Away from the Western Front: A Salonika Airman – the Story of Lieutenant Joseph Lamont Bamford┬áby Joe’s great-nephew, Gavin Bamford

If you would like to see someone from the Salonika campaign remembered here, please get in touch.

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal, 'The New Mosquito', a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915-1917, mainly in the Struma valley.
