Here Is a concrete example. A
certain lieutenant of the Royal Fly
ing corps was mentioned tn one of
those communiques. It seems he
had engaged an enemy aeroplane,
fought a duel with it among the
clouds, and downed it fairly and
squarely. Hoping to make an ex
ception of this case, permission was
sought to jise the aviator's name.
It was courteously, but firmly, re

so very, very anonymous about It

not a real horo. The roal thing does
