Squadron Commander Davies and Flight Lieutenant Peirse dropping bombs on the submarine station at Zeebrugge under heavy fire.


Squadron Commander Davies and Flight Lieutenant Peirse dropping bombs on the submarine station at Zeebrugge under heavy fire.

Squadron Commander Richard Bell Davies, R.N., and Flight Lieutenant Richard Edmund Charles Peirse have repeatedly attacked the German submarine stations at Ostend and Zeebrugge, while being subjected to heavy and accurate fire, during which their machines have frequently been hit. On January 23rd 1915, they flew over Zeebrugge, and at the beginning of the fight Squadron Commander Davies was severely wounded by a bullet in the thigh. But having planed down to close range, the two officers discharged eight bombs upon the German submarines, which were lying alongside the mole. In spite of pain and loss of blood Squadron Commander Davies handled his machine for an hour with great skill. Both officers were awarded the D.S.O.
