  • In July 1931 Percy Guy wrote this poem about Jack and Eliza White's fated honeymoon flight.

    To Jacky and Wife
    With happy smiles they bade farewell
    To friends that afternoon
    Ere they stepped in an aeorplane
    To spend their honeymoon.

    But elements beyond control
    Of human hand and mind.
    They intervened unhearalded
    To prove a fate unkind.

    The aeroplane had gone aloft
    Just o'er the tree tops there
    When suddenly it swerved and fell
    A wreck beyond repair.

    Its human freight in wreckage lay
    Their faces screened with blood,
    To meet the gaze of anxious friends
    Who heard the sickening thud.

    Tho' they are injured painfully,
    May they recover soon,
    And in the future both enjoy
    One lifelong honeymoon
    John Charles (Jack) White.
