Here’s another photo from the August 26 1929 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:
I’m not sure why British Flying Officer Waghorn was being carried ashore – the photo doesn’t say.
Richard Waghorn (1904-1931) went on to win the Schneider Trophy in 1929, awarded to the winner of a race for seaplanes and flying boats. When not flying, he was skiing: he placed second in a race in the 1930 British Ski Championship. He passed away when he lost control of an experimental Hawker Horsley biplane bomber that he was flying; he was able to parachute out, but was injured on landing.
