An American pilot who was killed in an aircraft accident aged 22.Roger Dix joined the American Field Service in July 1917 for service in France (Before America's entry into the war).He served in the Verdun area until in November 1917 he transferred to the US Aviation Service.Wanting to get back to the front as quickly as possible he agreed to train as a bombing-observer rather than take the longer pilot's course.His School of Instruction was here at Le Crotoy in the Bay of the Somme.He was unfortunately killed on his last training flight when the plane in which he was acting as observer fell from 200 metres.Both he and his French pilot were killed.
