The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




13 Aug 1916 @ 06h22 Railyard attack at Roulers Junction

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

I lead the flight with Hervey, Soar, Shook, Mesurier, and Huskisson accompanying.
We had rain most of the flight with heavy cumulous. The flight to the railyard was uneventful . We had a direct hit on the railyard and did considerable damage. On the way home we were chased by two EIIIs and Mesurier and Shook collided resulting in total write-off of their strutters and the death of both observers. Both Shook and Mesurier were lightly wounded. I turned on the EIIIs and drove them off and then returned to base. I suspect both Shook and Mesurier were distracted by the EIIIs but that was a total waste to lose two good men that way.

13 Aug 1916 @ 14h44 Artillery Spotting and Troop postitions recon south of Diksmuide.

I lead the flight with Booker and Soar accompanying. A flight sent three strutters piloted by Hervey, Parsons, and Huskisson to follow. The flight to the lines was uneventful other than verey heavy cumulous from 4000 to 7000 feet but we found a clear patch to do our obervations. Upon beginning our circling we encountered three EIIIs below us coming to party. I shot down one and Soar got the other. The third one disappeared east.
Upon arrival back at Coudekerque we discovered that both Parsons and Huskission of A flight were lightly wounded and had their observers killed and their aircraft destroyed.
