Wing-Cmdr Harold Melsome Probyn

  1916, when a 2nd Lieut in the 2/5th Royal Warwickshire Regiment, aged 25



from Lancashire, later an Air Commodore; retired to Kenya.

Felt that aviation wasn't as much fun after the invention of the parachute.

In 1927-8 he entered as 'Harold Brooklyn', and 1929-31 he entered as 'J Wellworth'; I have no idea why.
