Harold joined the London Regiment in 1910 and served with them until 1916 after which he moved to the RFC (later the RAF). On 27 December 1916 Harold’s plane was shot down by the infamous ‘Red Baron’ (Manfred von Richthofen, pictured above) although he was fortunately unhurt in the incident. Harold’s service file is filled with incidents causing him injuries. An article in the Invalids’ Magazine Album from 1915 included extracts from his letters in which he talked a little about his war experience.
