W.Robinson - The Reluctant Overnight Hero
Lieutenant Leefe Robinson poses in the cockpit of B.E.2c 2693, in which he shot down SL 11; the airmen beside the starboard wing are holding the upper wing’s original centre-section, which was probably damaged when Leefe Robinson shot away the wire guard that prevented the Lewis gunfire from hitting the aircraft’s structure.
One of the many postcards issued by companies eager to use the sensational destruction of SL 11 to promote their wares, this particularly vivid example was issued by Holborn-based biscuit manufacturer Walker, Harrison & Garthwaites. Leefe Robinson flew a B.E.2c, however, not the Avro 504 depicted!
