This is the logbook entry for Maurice Egerton on 29th March 1912
Seaman caught by back propeller of Navy triple.
and Flight wrote
Sad indeed was the accident sustained by one of the seamen, Fred Pullen, assisting in the Naval aviation operations at Eastchurch. To injuries received through coming into contact with a revolving propeller, he succumbed, and at the inquest which followed a verdict of “Accidental death" was expressed. Those who saw the accident say that he appeared to have forgotten the proximity of the propeller and walked on to it as he was going to remove the chocks from the wheels. Whether he did this, or whether he meant to pass close to it and by accident, slipped and fell on to the propeller, can never be known. It was with the Short triple-propeller twin-engined biplane that the accident occurred.
