Description

The bright red of the Flight Commander's ribbons streamed from the main braces of Captain Frank Thompson's Sopwith Pup. It was his first command : an offensive patrol deep into Germany. Suddenly he saw the dark shape of a Hun Albatros far below in the enemy sky. Instinctively he knew it was a trap ; but young Cardew was caught in it - and the jaws were closing fast. Frank signalled the attack. Then he throttled back and half - rolled the Pup to pull out at the vertical.
