Sat stalling it in without batting an eye,
Or using his throttle to help him on down -
The Flight Surgeon says he'll recover, the clown !".

Brantham's Butchers, Purveyors of Fine Meats to the City of Leeds, mounted a valiant private entry in the 1910 Schneider Trophy, but were unfortunately disqualified as they had failed to note a seaplane or flying boat was required.

Official RAF photo provided as proof that they had in fact been active over Dunkirk did not fool anybody.
