C1R ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR, the Air Minister, in a New
^ Year's message t o the R . A . F . and to the W . A . A . F . , in all
commands at home and abroad, s a i d : " I n the hard fighting

to all R . A . F . units, which r e a d s : " Your achievements in the

Nightingale

I Comes to Grief

YEAR ago the British Nurses' Air Ambulance Fund contributed the magnificent total of ^8,000 for the purchase
oi ambulances and aircraft. With part of the money a Boulton
Paul Defiant night tighter was bought and presented t o t h e
R . A . F . The machine was named, appropriately enough, Nightingale. It did good work, but one night towards the end of
1941 it ran into an electrical storm, which put the instruments
out of order. The pilot ordered his gunner to bale out, while
he stayed with the machine and tried to make a landing. He
crashed and lost his life in the gallant a t t e m p t .
A new fund has now been opened for the purchase of another
machine. It has been opened, as was the previous fund, by
our associated journal Nursing Mirror with a donation of 100.
5.000 is aimed at, and it is confidently expected t h a t this sum
will be collected so that Nightingale II may continue the good
work begun by the first machine.
