Could anyone help with an explanation of this air accident
Second Lieutenant Herbert Stanley MORRIS
Fiji Civil Service,private Secretary to Sir B Sweet-Escott
Aged 28, Wife and 2 children
Qualified as pilot
Wanted to fly back to Fiji
Killed in air accident
Thursday 14 August 1919.
buried KENSAL GREEN (ST. MARY'S) ROMAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY,
and also any comments on the wanting to fly back to Australia/Fiji. Apparently lots of Australian pilots wanted to fly home, but were not allowed. Why not?
Cost, legal ownership of planes, lack of suitable airports all come to mind, but any definite reasons?
