The news of the rescue of Mr. Hawker and Cot;mmander Grieve, pilot and navigator of the Sopwith ” Atlantic ” aeroplane, w s received an Sunday, May 25, and aroused intense enthusiasm. The glad tidings were conveyed to Mrs. Hawker after she left the parish church of Hook near her home at Surbiton. Our first photograph shows the acting Vicar of Hook reading Lloyd’s message to her.
