The life expectancy for a new pilot was very short and so it would be for Herbert. He died on 28 June 1917 from injuries resulting from an accident while landing. He is buried in plot V.A.11 at Lapugnoy Military Cemetery, France. Oddly, the records of The Royal Aero Club give his date of death as 8 August 1917.
|Herbert Hope was trained on a Maurice Farnum biplane.|
