Memorial to Captain Alexander Bruce Kynoch RFC, Dollymans Farm, Shotgate

Captain Alexander Bruce Kynoch was based at Stow Maries with 37 Squadron when on the night of 7th March 1918 he took off in BE12 C3208 at 23.29 to intercept a German raider heading for London. A minute later Captain Henry Clifford Stroud based at Rochford with 61 Squadron took off in SE5a B679 to intercept the same raider. In the darkness the two aircraft collided and fell in Dollymans Farm.
