William Alfred Joseph Eyles

Served at the South Shields Seaplane Base

The 1911 census lists William Ayles as having been born in North Shields so probably knew his surroundings well. The navy seems to have been in his blood as his father is recorded as being a Navy Pensioner who originated from Somerset but then settled in Hartlepool. William appeared in the medical journal as he was suffering from ‘flu.
