Captain JOHN THEOBALD MILNE

Aged 22
Unit 48th Sqdn. Royal Flying Corps
Awards MC, Mentioned in Despatches
Commemorated at ARRAS FLYING SERVICES MEMORIAL

Captain John Theobald Milne MC (20 August 1895 – 24 October 1917) was an English fighter pilot and flying ace of the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War. He was credited (with his gunners) with nine aerial victories (four destroyed and five ‘out of control’).

Milne was born in 1895 in Kensington, London, the son of John and Isabel Milne. He was educated at Abingdon School (1905 to 1909) and then Radley College (1909 to 1912), both in Oxfordshire.

Joining the army at the outbreak of the First World War, Milne was commissioned as a temporary second lieutenant on 4 September 1914 to serve in the 6th Battalion, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry and was promoted to lieutenant on 30 December 1914. His battalion arrived in France in July 1915.

In 1916 Milne transferred to the Royal Flying Corps, being appointed a flying officer (observer) on 4 April. After completing his flight training he was appointed a flying officer on 24 June, and then appointed a flight commander, with the temporary rank of captain, on 1 October.

Eventually posted to France to serve in No. 48 Squadron, flying the Bristol Fighter, Milne gained his first aerial victory on 6 July 1917 by driving down out of control an Albatros D.III, east of Cambrai, he then destroyed an Albatros D.V south of Vitry the following day. Milne shot down another D.V over Ghistelles on 12 July, then returned to England on leave, where on 24 July, in the parish church of Sutton Courtenay, he married Joan Florence Hanmer (1894–1975), younger daughter of Mr. Thomas Hanmer. Milne soon returned to his squadron, and shot down two more D.Vs over Ghistelles on 20 August, and another the following day east of Westkerke. He shot down another over Westkerke on 25 August, then two more, one over Middelkerke on 9 September, and another over Slype on 28 September.

Around the same time he received his award Milne was listed as having been wounded in action, but soon returned to flying as he and his observer were shot down near Merkem on 24 October 1917 by Fritz Kieckhäfer of Jasta 29

Citation for Military Cross – Temporary Captain J. T. Milne, General List and R.F.C. – Whilst leading offensive patrols he has shown great determination and courage in attacking hostile formations, although in superior numbers, at close range. He has also done long and arduous reconnaissances and secured good photographs under very adverse conditions and heavy fire, displaying throughout an admirable spirit of fearlessness and energy. London Gazette, 17th Sept.1917.

24 October 1917 - Lords Sitting

LORD STRACHIE My Lords, I beg to ask His Majesty's Government the Question standing in my name—viz., whether the selling of coal at the pit's mouth by colliery companies is selling it retail.

LORD HYLTON My Lords, my noble friend is well aware that the great bulk of the produce of all collieries is not sold at the pit's mouth, but as regards the small proportion that is so sold the prices are now governed by an Order made by the Board of Trade on the 12th of the present month. That Order has been published in the London Gazette, and, as I am informed by the Board of Trade, they have taken other means of making it known to the public. It fixes a price of 9s. above the price obtained on the corresponding date in the year 1913 in the case of mines in South Wales and Monmouthshire and in the Forest of Dean, and of 6s. 6d. above the price obtained at the corresponding date in all other areas. I have a copy of the Order here if my noble friend would care to see it.

Battle of Vittorio Veneto, 24 October-4 November 1918 (Italy)

Decisive battle of the Italian front during the First World War. After repulsing the last Austrian attack (battle of the Piave), the Italians regrouped, and on 24 October General Armando Diaz launched an attack along the entire front with British, French and Italian troops. By this point the Austro Hungarian Empire had started to fall apart. Czechoslovakia declared it's independence on 21 October, Yugoslavia on 29 October, and even Austrian and Hungary left the sinking ship. This did not prevent stubborn resistance at the front, with the British and French having most success, where it took until 30 October for the Austrian army to break. When it did, the retreat became a rout, with no line maintained, and Allied troops advancing on all fronts. The Imperial government made repeated attempts to surrender, but by the time an armistice was signed on 3 November, effective the following day, there was no Empire to surrender. By the time the fighting ended, allied troops had reached Trent in the north and taken Trieste on the Adriatic from the sea, although on most parts of the front they had not reached the frontline before Caporetto.

24 October 1918 - Pte John S Lamberton killed in action on this day

From Stewarton, Ayr, John was a cabinet maker in the employ of Messrs W Mackenzie & Co prior to the war. In January 1917, he was conscripted into the Army Service Corps, where he served under the number T/291090. He was sent to France in the summer of 1917 but soon transferred to the 11th Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers with which he took part in the Third Battle of Ypres (usually known as Passchendaele). Twice wounded whilst with the 11th Battalion, John was killed in action near the Canal du Nord, shortly after returning to his unit following recovery from his second wounding. Having no known grave, he is commemorated on the Vis en Artois Memorial to the Missing.

BirthFactDeath (-) Thursday 24th of October 1918

Hotelier César Ritz dies of unknown causes at the age of 68 in Küssnacht, Schwyz, Switzerland.

http://www.birthfactdeathcalendar.net/events/24-october-1918-a/

César Ritz

César Ritz (23 February 1850 – 24 October 1918) was a Swiss hotelier and founder of several hotels, most famously the Hôtel Ritz in Paris and the Ritz Hotel in London. He was known as "king of hoteliers, and hotelier to kings," and it is from his name and that of his hotels that the term ritzy derives.

THE BRITISH BELGIAN BANTAM CLUB

A Description of our Allies' Favourites - By F. J. S. Chatterton
(writing in The Poultry World 24 October 1919)

The Belgian Bearded Bantam section at the late Crystal Palace show will be remembered by many as the prettiest and best arranged show of poultry ever brought together in this country. The attraction was great, and the interest shown by all who visited the exhibition was considerable.
These quaint and unique little birds were becoming very popular in this country, but the war stopped their advance, as it did many other things. It is now hoped that breeders and admirers of these quaint birds will make a fresh start. Therefore a few remarks about their characteristics may be useful and welcome, more especially to those who have lately started with them and those about to take up one of the varieties of the breed.
As a rule they are hardy little birds, very active, and excitable, with plenty of spirit. Some of the hens are excellent layers and make first-class mothers, carefully brooding their chickens and attending to them, calling them to any dainty morsels of food they find for quite a long time, in fact, until they are fully feathered, which is of great help in rearing these birds. Some of the chickens when hatched are so small one wonders if they will live, but they are strong, and can run about quickly, and soon begin eating. One has to be careful with their allowance of food or they will eat till they are full up, and get crop-bound and die. They feather well and quickly, and are not much trouble to rear. It is advisable to keep the cocks away from the hens during the moulting season. As is usual in other varieties of poultry, both large and small, the clean-legged varieties are far more popular than the feathered-legged ones.
