French Ace, 5 Kills - 1924

22-P-258

Regular price $25.00

Vintage Daily Mirror press photo, 6x8", b&w.  Penciled on the back is "Lieut. Georges P.D'Oisy".  D'Oisy was a WWI French Ace and on 24 Apr 1924 he attempted a circumnavigation, crashing in Shanghai.  The date on the photo is 5/27/1924 so it is likely the story behind it is the failed attempt. Very good; some margin black rubs and cropping notes upper right.
