at 'llfden tells of an adventiurous and

and mists hung over the North At

tacked and dived, struggling to extri

plane's worst enlemy.
She rose to 11,000 feet, swooped
down almost to the surface of the sea

themselvyes flying upside down only
ten feet above the water.
liefore coming to earth near the
Clifden wireless station Alcock circled
the wireless aerials, seeking the best
spot to reach the earth, but no sitable
ground was found, so lie chanced it
in a bog.
Thle wireless staff rushed to the aid
of the aviators. They found Brown
(lazed and Alcock temporarily deaf
