WWI, 12 Jan 1917 Sgt Thomas Mottershead, VC, DCM died of wounds received when his aircraft was attacked over Ploegsteert Wood and its petrol tank hit. He flew the fiercely burning machine back behind British lines to save his observer. He landed savely, but was so badly burned that he died 5 days later. -Sandra Gittins (@ypreswoman) | Twitter
