Buried at ARNEKE BRITISH CEMETERY
Son of Count Paul D’Etchegoyen, of Chateau de Montfleaux, St. Denis-de-Gastines, Mayenne, France.
Flew with Naval 10 and 210 RAF.
Three pilots from 210 Squadron crashed in mist or fog that day within a few miles of one another between St. Omer and Bergues. Louis Paul Bryant Adalbert d’Etchegoyen’s injuries were severe, and he died two days later. Eric Stennett Arnold survived, but a casualty card at the Royal Air Force Museum London indicates he spent considerable time in hospital with a fractured skull.
Lieutenant Henry Bradley Frost, taking part in a bombing and offensive patrol, crashed a mile east of Esquelbecq in fog; his Camel (D3382) was damaged, and he was “shaken” and sustained a “contusion wound under left eye. Not serious.” He returned to duty on May 16, 1918.
