  • R. C. Edmonston Low

It is undoubtedly true to say that with the death of Archibald Reith Low on the 21st January 1969, there departed from the scene the last of the early pioneers of British aviation.

Born in Aberdeen on 31st December 1878, he was brought up with four brothers and three .sisters at the Manse at Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, where his father was Minister of the Church of Scotland. His mother was Jane Stuart Reith, aunt of the present Lord Reith, who was thereby his first cousin.
