Mr Dring Lester Forestier-Walker



 b. c.1900

1921 was his only Aerial Derby, and he crashed the Sopwith Pup (which he presumably borrowed from its owner Mr Rickards) at Hendon. There is a rumour that he may have been drunk.

The aircraft survived, however (or at least its fuselage did) and is under long-term restoration at RNAS Yeovilton.

d. Dec 1968 in Aylesbury.
