I'm looking for information on 2/Lt Cyril Charles Edward ROBINSON, 59 Squadron RAF, who died on 28 April 1918 aged 22 (Doullens CC Extn. No. 2).
- According to the wonderful Chris Hobson's Airman Died 2/lt Robinson died in RE.8 B6520. Killed whilst flying. 2/Lt P Thornton was also killed.
- I can add a little more info: they were killed at take-off. They were heading out on patrol when the pilot began to make a turn at about 300 feet but got into a spinning nose dive and crashed.
If you have any information about 2nd Lt. Robinson, please contact me, thank you.
