The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




6 Aug 1916 @ 07h25 Recon troop and vehicle movement east of Ypres.

Escort of 6 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 out of Furnes

Winds were 3 km out of the South with dense cumulus from 4000 to 6000 ft.
I lead the flight with Shook, Parsons, and Chadwick accompanying. a flight sent one strutter with us. The flight was uneventful and the clouds so dense that visibility was almost nill. Chadwick crashed on return but neither he nor his observer were hurt.

6 Aug 1916 @ 16h06 Railyard attack at Loos Junction

Escort of 2 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 out of Furnes.

Hill lead the flight with myself, Shook, Hervey and Huskisson accompanying.
We no sooner took off and reached the outskirts of Dunkirk when my engine began failing. I was forced to land on the road out of Dunkirk. I heard on return that the mission was a failure.
