  • Request

All letters addressed from H.M.S. Excellent, Portsmouth. Milne was commissioned as a Lieutenant R.N.V.R. in order to ensure against his being conscripted and perhaps transferred from his naval work. This is referred to (to be kept 'perfectly squat') in letters of 8 and 24 May. Letters of July and August describe 'stalling turns' and his early experience of flying.
