Jan 12, 1916.

Glorious day. 2 Section + 1 a/c for High Cover mixed it up with a Boche Balloon. Everyone was shooting and Rocketing at the same time. I couldn't tell who was doing what, but when the smoked cleared the Bag was mine.

On the second flight , I went up solo around the lines at Loos and found some game. I made 2 passes at a 2 seat machine firing off a full Drum then pulled up and leveled off to reload. The Boche a/c dove and scooted for home. Reloaded , I called it a day and headed back since by then the Hun was deep on the enemy side of the lines.

Nearly got the chop today. My sections 3 a/c +1 Cover machine was over the lines near Fricourt when we spotted 3 e/a at a lower altitude. As we swung around to dive we got bounced by 2-3 a/c. The enemy Scouts just went through us then they were gone. Our cover a/c is missing so we assume a KIA.
I never got off a shot although we did turn and chase them.

2 Kills confirmed

17 Jan 1916.

2 Section destroyed a balloon near Lens. as we reformed, I spotted 2 E-IIs up against the cloud base. I peeled off and pursued. One e/a turned to fire and much turning and firing , I got a few shots into his motor or fuel because his motor stopped. I watched as he went down on his side of the lines making a Hard landing. Confirmed by my flight leader. The intell people said it was a Fokker E-II. I must learn to shoot better used all my 3 drums of ammo and it was just lucky hits to nail him.

Jan 18th: A washout . No compression in motor after take off. Landed

Jan 19th: The flight of 9 a/c was led by Captanie Raymond to take out a Balloon. Being Tail end charlie in a slower machine , made me the last one over the take area. Added my rockets to the mess below then got jumped by 2 Fokkers while forming up. My wing mate got one the other I banged around with till the drum was empty. I guess, he got tired of my chandells, loops and turns because he went home. Finally, I could reload ,but he was too far away to re-engage

Jan 19th

After coming off a Railyard attack, I spotted an e/a. The 2 Seat machine appeared to be headed home and at low altitude. I made 3 passes at that Boche with a full Drum of 47 rds each time. He did not go down just flew away home after his gunner put 5 holes in the wing and 2 in my N-10;s Tail.
