15 February 1916 – Deadly Zeppelin Patrols

The cost of anti-Zeppelin patrols remains high. Today two pilots failed to return from patrols in the English Channel. Both are presumed to have crashed into the sea and drowned. Flight Sub-Lieutenant Herbert Page and Flight Sub-Lieutenant Bernard Richards Lee were both based at RNAS Yarmouth, on the Isle of Wight.

Prior to transferring the RNAS, Lee had served in the flotilla that attacked and sunk the Koenigsberg in East Africa.
