    Default Lt. Jerome Keith, Observer, AEF, Issoudun, France

    Here is yet another piece from my aviation collection. Terry Morris and Duncan Campbell both feature Lt. Keith's wing in their publications. The letter from Keith is a very interesting read as flight characteristics of the Neiuport, the capture of a German general, and Rene' Fonck are mentioned in the letter.

    Newspaper clipping announcing award of the French CDG included in letter home. In fact, the clipping is responsible for the acid stains on the letter.

    IQ, Very nice letter indeed! I just saw this post and am glad that you brought it back up. Have you tried to request a copy of his CdG citation?

    Hi Erick, thanks for the reply. The content is rather nice, and not just the usual communications often found. I assume that I would have to submit the request through the French government? Would you know how or who I might contact to obtain a copy?
