Flight Serjeants Warne and Cannon went to the rescue o f the pilot at great personal risk as one tank o f petrol blew up and another was on fire moreover the machine was equipped with a belt of live cartridges, which they dragged out o f the flames. They managed to extricate the pilot who was strapped to the burning plane but he died shortly after wards from his injuries and burns.” 84
