The accident in this picture took place on 24 January 1938. The plane  was piloted by Sergeant Ernest Harry Lomax, who managed to bail out after failing to recover from a spin at 4,000 feet.

Lomax landed in Beaconsfield Road with very minor injuries, for which he was sent to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.
