Flyboys of 'stout heart'
from Waterloo Record
Lt. Jerry Flynn pressed the trigger on the machine-gun mounted near his cockpit and poured 150 bullets into a German biplane. The two-winged enemy airplane spiralled out of control toward the ground. Score one for the Royal Air Force, May 17, 1918, above the Western Front. Flynn was from Waterloo, Ontario. Comrades in the 32nd squadron lovingly nicknamed him Little Jerry because he was a short teenager, his head barely peeking over the open cockpit of his Sopwith biplane.
