    • AN AIRMAN'S DEATH. LIEUT. G. V. AIMER. A POPULAR AUCKLANDER. Lieutenant George Vernon Aimer ,a member of the Royal Flying Corps, who was accidentally killed whilst flying near London on June 22, was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Aimer, of St. Stephen’s Avenue, Parnell. He was born in Hokianga in 1886, and was educated in Auckland. For a time he was employed in the Government Forestry Department at Rotorua, subsequently taking a position in Fiji. Shortly after returning to Auckland, in 1910, he entered the service of the Bank of New Zealand as correspondence clerk, a position he held for about five years. In August of last year he obtained extended leave of absence, and proceeded to England for health reasons. After a short time in hospital he offered his services to the War Office, but they were not accepted, owing to the state of his health. Lieutenant Aimer then studied aviation, and after qualifying for his pilot's certificate, was appointed an instructor at the London Provincial Aviation Co.'s School. Later he again offered his services to the military authorities, and was given a commission in the Royal Flying Corps. Since then he had been through a course of instruction in army work at Oxford, and it is believed was receiving further training at one of the War Office's aerodromes when he met with the unfortunate accident which resulted in his death. When in Auckland the late lieutenant was very popular in athletic circles, and had at different times, over a period of eight years, been a member of the St. George's Rowing Club, part of which time he was captain. A brother, Trooper Alexander Goven Aimer left for the front with the thirteenth reinforcements. (NZH 24 June 1916).

      According to Errol W Martyn in For Your Tomorrow, Aimer was involved with solo training and piloted a Martinsyde SI 696 on 20 June 1916, flying from an aerodrome outside of London. His plane fell into a spin at about 3000 feet, and dived into the ground. Aimer died later that day at RFC Hospital at Bryanston Square, London, and was buried at Ruislip.
