The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




1 Aug 1916 @ 14h53 Railyard attack at Roulers Junction

Hervey lead the flight with Parsons, Mesurier and myself accompanying.
The flight to the railyard was quiet with no enemy aircraft sighted as we passed over Rumbeke aerodrome. We pummeled the railyard and Hervey gave the sign to return to base. At this point I decided to return to the sight of my morning encounter with the Hun sausage and when I arrived there I was delighted to see that they had replaced it with a new one for me to have a go at. I dived too steeply and the fabric on my wings started to shed. I leveled out came around and had another go at it and set it alight. I then headed back to base. The fitters were fit to be tied when they saw my lower wings. I bought them a round to appease them somewhat.

2 Aug 1916 @ 06h13 Bombing of Houplin aerodrome

Escort of 3 DH. 2 from RFC-29 out of Abeele

Booker lead the flight with Myself and Huskisson accompanying. "A" flight sent one Strutter on ahead as advance lead. We encountered a gaggle of EIIIs just before approaching Houplin and Parsons elected to engage. I downed 3 EIIIs in the melee. Booker got one and Huskisson another. Booker elected to return to base but I made a bomb run on the airfield before leaving but hit nothing. On the way back I downed a Hun sausage just west of Houplin airfield.
