Personal Notes:
One of the most famous RFC/RAF fighter squadrons, Number 56, was formed at Fort Rowner, Gosport on 9 June 1916 and soon after set about introducing the new SE5 fighter/scout into service. In April 1917, the unit moved to France. Several famous RFC pilots served with the Squadron; Captain Albert Ball was a founder member, but was killed in May 1917 and posthumously awarded the VC; Lieutenant APF Rhys David spent a number of months with the Squadron and perhaps the most famous RFC pilot of the First World War, Captain James McCudden arrived with seven victories to his name. Six months later he left with a score of 57! By the time the War ended, the Squadron claimed 427 victories - all with SE5As.
