Frederick Raynham and C. F. W. Morgan.
Newfoundland was a natural starting point for those attempting to be first to cross the Atlantic Ocean by air in the years immediately following the end of the war. Voorhis David Demarest was in Newfoundland during the spring of 1919 when Frederick Raynham and C. F. W. Morgan (R), two of the competitors, crashed. He had previously visited Newfoundland in 1916-17.
