A WW1 Ace Scores a Victory
Euan Dickson and AGL V Robinson, DH.4 by Ivan Berryman
Text for print : A veteran of
over 150 missions flying the DH.4, Captain Euan Dickson was credited with an
impressive 14 victories during his service with both the RNAS and RAF. After the
war, Dickson returned to New Zealand where he continued to fly, pioneering mail
routes and becoming the first man to fly across Cook Strait in 1920. His 205
Squadron DH.4 is shown here as Observer / Gunner V Robinson rakes an attacking
Pfalz D.III on 3rd May, 1918, sending it spiraling to the ground out of control.
This original painting hangs in Dickson's native New
Zealand - canvas replica prints are currently available at half price.
