I have a suspicion that I am asking for something that does not exist here, but let me give it a try.
I am looking at the military career of Edward Medley Sant, who was missing after a flight on 1 September 1917 and later officially presumed dead on that day. I have a copy of his service record, medal record, 19 Squadron RFC history and combat reports covering his brief time with the Squadron: he served for precisely eight days with his unit before losing his life. Typically his record includes no details of his flying career and other than his name appearing in a casualty list there appears to be no record of his activity with the Squadron. I am guessing it may even have been his first operational flight.
If anyone can throw more light onto 19 Squadron and E. M. Sant, I would be grateful.
The aerodrome forum carries an old entry suggesting he was shot down by one Karl Hammes of Jasta 35.
