Sorry I should have copied out for you. Aubrey De Tessier 2nd Lieut. Royal Flying Corps. Killed in a flying accident during the European War 12th October 1917.

I also found several others there which I took pics of, many of them RAF because of the Suttons Airfield site in the vicinity. Regards Steve.
