Product Details

Captain William Stanley Jenkins was a Canadian Ace during World War I. He was officially credited with 12 aerial victories, having scored his first two while still on sick leave.

Jenkins used his Sopwith Camel to destroy a German Albatros D.V fighter on 27 May 1918. On 6 June, he teamed with fellow Canadian John Gerald Manuel to destroy an enemy reconnaissance two-seater plane over Doulieu. It appears that while Jenkins was still technically convalescent, he was not too ill to fight. He would not be discharged from hospital until 2 August 1918.

He then ran off a string of eight consecutive triumphs over German fighters during August, September, and October. On 3 October, he was injured; he returned to duty on the 14th. The day before the Armistice, 10 November 1918, he destroyed a DFW C.V reconnaissance plane and a Fokker D.VII. Jenkins thus ended his war with a tally of two Fokker D.VIIs set afire in flight, five other German fighters destroyed, two German recon planes destroyed, and three enemy planes driven down out of control. He had twice won the Distinguished Flying Cross for his valor.
