Arthur C Saw (1881-1916)
This is the third in an occasional series to commemorate the centenary of the deaths of a number of World War I pilots whose pictures are missing from the Royal Aero Club’s records. Arthur Connorton Saw was born on 10 May 1881 in Greenwich. He qualified as a pilot at the Royal Naval Flying School at Eastchurch on 29 March 1915. On 21 April 1916 – 100 years ago today – while flying off Calshot, he was killed in a seaplane accident. Do you recognise his name? Can you help track down his photograph? Family photographs? Squadron records? Local newspaper reports? Any help you can offer will be very gratefully received. If you can provide a copy of his photograph, or if you have any ideas about where may be a good place to look, please “Contact Us” through this web-site, with “The RAeC Collection – albums, archives” in the Subject line of your Email.
