British fighter ace Duncan William Grinnell-Milne was born on August 6th, 1896, in London and at the age of thirteen, he joined the ranks of the 5th Battalion Rifle Brigade (Prince Consort’s Own). After the beginning of the war, he was deemed too young for service at the Front and was left on the island. He was subsequently assigned to the RFC and underwent pilot training. On September 29th, 1915, he received orders that assigned him to No.16 Squadron, RFC. As a member of this unit, he took part in the fighting, but on December 1st, 1916 he was shot down and taken prisoner. He managed to escape in April 1918 and return to the British side of the Front. After that, he was assigned to No.56 Squadron, equipped with the SE.5a. On December 17th, 1918, he was assigned CO of this unit. He had the fuselage of his SE.5a painted red and named it ‘Schweinhund’ as a reference to his time in German captivity.
