Squadron Commander Davies ascending in his aeroplane after taking flight Sub Lieutenant Smylie onboard.

The enemy were soon hard on the track of Lieutenant Smylie. But, having descended at a safe distance from the burning aeroplane, Commander Davies took up Lieutenant Smylie and returned to the aeroplane. For skill and gallantry this feat of airmanship can seldom have been equalled, and Commander Davies was deservedly rewarded with the V.C.

 During the battle of Neuve Chapelle, March 10th-12th 1915, great activity was shown by the British airmen, whose plans were brilliantly conceived and executed.  The weather, however, was extremely bad for flying, and it compelled the airmen to fly no higher than one hundred to one hundred and fifty feet, and thus run great risks.  On the night of March 10th, one of the British aeroplanes was forced to descend near the firing line, and 2nd class Air Mechanic J. E. Prance, of the Royal Flying Corps, set to work to help in repairing it.  Shells burst all round Prance and his comrade, but the two men worked with such enthusiasm that the machine was ready for flying the next morning.  For his valuable services Prance was rewarded with the D.C.M.

At 0620 hours covered by a brief barrage from 1000 guns, the tanks of C and F Battalions in MkIV tanks advanced alongside the men of the British 12th Division against the impregnable German Hindenburg line at Cambrai.  Supported in the air by 4 RFC squadron flying ground attack missions, the general offensive had broken through 3 trench lines and penetrated 5 miles on a 6 mile front by lunchtime.  Although these gains were not exploited and later retaken by a German counter offensive, Cambrai showed the full potential of the tank on the battlefield.

 Temporary Second Lieutenant Leslie Frederick Forbes, General List and Royal Flying Corps, has displayed conspicuous gallantry and ability in attacking hostile machines and in bombing railway lines, especially on one occasion when he descended to 350 feet order to accomplish his object.  He was subsequently awarded the M.C.
