Poor weather has curtailed flying on the Western Front.
Back in England, an Australian, Alan D’Arcy Sutherland who had only graduated as a Flying Officer on 26 February 1917, was killed in a training accident today. He was killed flying a Sopwith Strutter (7810) at the Central Flying School at Upavon when the wings failed as he came into land too steeply.
Also killed was Captain James Leonard Thomas from 7 Reserve Squadron at Netheravon. He allowed his Maurice Farman Shorthorn (7372) to stall while executing a turn and he crashed in to the ground.
