Memorial To Flight Lieutenant S.m. Kinkead, Rnas/raf
That this House salutes the memory of Flight Lieutenant Samuel Marcus 'Kink' Kinkhead, who volunteered for the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Air Force, gaining 32 aerial victories in the First World War; recalls his gallant exploits between the ages of 20 and 22, which were recognised by successive awards of the DSC and Bar, DFC and Bar and DSO; notes that he participated in the Schneider Trophy Contest as a member of the RAF High Speed Flight, but was killed attempting to raise the world air speed record to more than 300 miles per hour; endorses the glowing tributes paid to him as one of the finest RAF officers of his generation; and welcomes the decision of Hampshire County Council to unveil a permanent memorial to him at Calshot, where he flew, to mark the 70th anniversary of his death on 12th March 1928.
This motion has been signed by a total of 107 MPs.
