Including this VC story:

"On 30 March 1918 in, Italy, Lieutenant Jerrard, with two other officers on offensive patrol, shot down one of five enemy aircraft. Then flying at 50 feet he attacked an aerodrome with some 19 machines either landing or attempting to take off.

"After destroying one of these he was attacked by more enemy aircraft but, seeing a brother-officer in difficulties, went to assist him, destroying a third enemy machine, then continued his attacks, only retreating, with five machines in pursuit, on the orders of the patrol leader. Even then he repeatedly turned to beat off the enemy until finally forced down. He later achieved the rank of Flight Lieutenant."
