Edward Corringham "Mick" Mannock
Birth: May 24, 1887
Death: Jul. 26, 1918

World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Ballincollig, Ireland he served as a Major commander of the 85 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps. After fifty-eight confirmed air victories, Major Mannock offered to help a new arrival pilot 2nd Lieutenant Donald Inglis, obtain his first victory on a mission July 26, 1918. After shooting down a German Albatros D-II fighter behind the German front-line, the two men headed for home. While crossing the trenches at Doulieu, France, the two British fighters were met with a massive volley of ground-fire. The engine of Major Mannock's aircraft was hit, immediately caught fire and crashed in flames behind German lines. For devotion to duty and self-sacrifice, he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross presented to his father at Buckingham Palace in July 1919. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

Very few people have ever heard your name, but you were a superb airman and fighting ace. Rest in peace, Warrior. May God grant you a special place in Eternity.
