Double Trouble
The most successful British two-seater of  the war was the Bristol Fighter, when flown  like a fighter it was the equal of any single  seater but with the added benefit of a gun  to protect the pilot's back. Andrew Edward  McKeever was the highest scoring ace to  fly this aircraft. Andrew McKeever was born and raised in  Elma Township. He enlisted with the  Canadian Expeditionary  Force in 1916 but,  attracted by the life of  the fighter pilot,  transferred to Britain's  Royal Flying Corps once  he was overseas. From  May 1917 to January  1918 McKeever was  posted to the 11th  Squadron on the  Western Front. An  outstanding operator of the two-seater  Bristol Fighter, he, with his various  observers or gunners, shot down some 30  enemy aircraft during reconnaissance

missions and offensive patrols, earning  the Military Cross For conspicuous  gallantry and devotion to duty,  particularly when on offensive patrol.  He attacked eight enemy aircraft  single-handed at close range, and by  his splendid dash and determination  destroyed one and drove five down  completely out of control. He had  previously shown exceptional  fearlessness in attacking the enemy  when in superior numbers, and in the  space of three weeks he destroyed  eight hostile machines, setting a fine  example to his squadron." MC citation,  London Gazette, September 17, 1917.  He later earned a Bar (DFC), the  Distinguished Service Order for his  "conspicuous gallantry and devotion to  duty" and the Croix de Guerre. At the end of the war, McKeever  returned home where, on Christmas  Day, 1919 he died as the result of  complications from a broken leg after  sustaining injuries in a car accident.
