Dr. A. Stanley Trickett
On April 1, 1918, in the midst of a long and bloody war the British government organized a new military service Three years earlier the war had become stalemated in the trenches of France and successive, mammoth, grinding battle had succeeded only in destroying the youth of a generation. Partly in reaction to this trench-bound war of mud and misery the British turned to a new weapon which fought in the clean and free environment of the sky.
