The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




8 Aug 1916 @ 06h04 Recon enemy troop and vehicle movement south of Nieuport

Hill lead the flight with myself, Parsons, Booker, Soar, and Huskisson accompanying.
A flight sent 2 strutters to follow. The flight to the lines was quiet and peaceful. Winds were 6 km from the SSW and we had scattered cumulous from 4000 to 6000 ft.

Upon crossing the lines we encountered 6 EIIIs and Hill gave the command to attack. I stayed higher than the others at first, circling to look for a likely target. I did not have to wait long. I made passes on three different EIIIs scoring on each of them. A flight joined in and took down two of them. Booker, Soar, Hill and myself each got one. We finished up on our mission and headed home. Huskisson was the only one lightly damaged on the mission and his craft will be out of service for 2 days.
