Fullofit,

Thanks for the news update. I applied for a transfer a few days ago, knowing I'd be away for a couple of weeks, but even though I've advanced the calendar the transfer hasn't come through yet. So I may need to put the delay into my story. The plan is to take over 70, flying Camels, which I've never done on DiD.

Feb 3, 1918.

Dawn Patrol came early, Took off with 6 a/c came back with 6 all we did was chase a Recon Type.

Afternoon; While doing a line Patrol with 3 a/c in a Vee formation, we spotted a Melee below us and to the East of Spads and E/a Scouts. Diving under then up, I glued myself on to a e/a that was on the tail of a friendly. I pumped 44 rds of machine gun ammo at him. He broke off and went home. IRTB.

MFair, my pleasure.

8 October, 1917 Harlebeke
Jasta 18

Fog. Thick fog. Aldi could not believe they had orders to fly in this muck. You could barely see the propeller spinning in front of you, let alone be able to track the enemy. Was the enemy as crazy as them to be up here looking for trouble? Apparently yes. The reports have come in that the enemy planes were spotted flying in this area. Intercepting these intruders will be tricky. Aldi’s only consolation was that his unit’s brightly painted machines were visible even in this mist.

[Linked Image]

It helped with avoiding collisions, but as a side effect it made them easier to spot by the enemy. The situation improved slightly, the fog dissipated and was replaced by dark clouds. Then the rain came and with it a flock of SPADs. They swooped down from the cloud cover and mixed it up with the Albatrosen. The German machines had the advantage of being more maneuverable, but the French had the speed. Despite their best efforts the Albatros scouts could not attain superiority. The fight was a huge windmill of planes turning in large circles with neither side being able to fire. It’s almost as if they were all too lazy to fight. The maneuvering was just a formality. Something to write down in their battle reports. The melee eventually fizzled out with the French machines making a beeline for the trenches and the safety of their own airspace. Schwarzkopf’s flight gave a weak chase and turned back before the front lines.

[Linked Image]

The “fight” left a bad taste in Aldi’s mouth. It seemed the French were toying with them and the Jasta was powerless to do anything about it. The fog returned.
A surprise was waiting for them when landing at the base. A lone SE 5a was sitting on the field. It looked very out of place among the bright blue and red machines. 2Lt J. J. Fitzgerald of No 60 Sqn had gotten lost in the thick fog and had to land at Harlebeke when his engine failed. The mechanics and the pilots alike were surrounding the machine with serial number B507 trying to get a better look. Aldi was one of them. It partially made up for the dismal outcome of their patrol.

Sgt Collin Sitwell
62 Sqn RFC
Serny

It took the better part of the 1st to get the squadron moved from St Omer to Serny airfield. I was lucky enough to fly, but those stuck taking a lorry were caught in a dreadful traffic jam in the center of Lumbres. We settled our gear hastily in the Nissan Huts and hurried to consecrate the mess.

I was getting to know my observer 2Lt Harry Hollcombe fairly well. He was a very young man, just 19. He was extremely keen and had so far treated me almost as a fellow officer. This was made easier by Maj Smith's order that all pilots and observers, regardless of rank would share the officers mess.

Harry, was a North Englishman. He spoke with a thick accent and seldom had anything other than a smile plastered on his boyish features. He was easy to like and I was glad to be paired with him.

The other pilots werent as quick to make friendly, but there did not seem to be any malice directed my way. It seemed everyone was excited to start.

The plan was for us to spend several weeks flying practice patrols before getting into the real action. The plan lasted until afternoon tea before the telephone rang and B Flight, to which I have been assigned, was sent up to invistigate reports of enemy aircraft flying over the trenches.

It was terribly exciting and, at the same time, terrifying. I gathered some comfort from Harry strapped in behind me with his two machine guns and pushed the throttle forward to chase after B Flight.

We headed North for a short ways before turing East and heading for Loos, climbing as fast as the Brisfit can. She seems a sturdy craft, able to do whatever it is that is asked of her.

Upon reaching the lines i spot specks in the distance. I signaled to the flight leader, Captain Morrow and we were off in persuit. In my excitement I pulled out of formation and started to outpace everyone else. As I closed, I saw the offending craft were Rumplers. I decided to approach from slightly below to ensure the rear gunner couldnt get me before I got him.

I rapidly closed and fired a long burst from short range. My rounds went everywhere. I saw several hit the hun, but it carried on unharmed. As this happened I came into range of the second Rumpler, who took the opportunity to rake my kite with bullets. How Harry and I werent hit is a mystery.

I spun away quickly, and turned West, only realizing now that we had crossed the front and were in Hun land. It was the my motor quit on me. My eyes went wide as I came to the awful realization that the hun had put a hole in our fuel line.

I set out in a glide for safety. We crossed the German trenches at a fine altitude and aimed for an army encampment just across a river. I misjudged the approach and cone frighteningly close to ending up inside several of the tents, but managed to avoid disaster.

From there is was a quick telephone call and a long wait for the lorry back to Serny. Harry and spent the time reliving the fight over and over. We decided that if we get another crack at two seaters, I will fire a burst and the turn left to give Harry a good shot with his guns.

We dont get a chance on either the second or third, as a storm front brings snow, rain, and misery to France.

We also learn that Morrow brought down the Rumpler I damaged, scoring the first victory for the squadron.

Dark_Canuck, sounds like Sgt. Sitwell needs to work on his tactics for attacking a formation of 2-seaters. He has a fine mount in the Brisfit and should be able to fly rings round all the Hun B/R buses and a fair number of the scouts as well. Best of luck to him.

Carrick, condolences to the Vickers family on their loss. Here’s hoping your latest French aviateur has a glowing career, and not because his kite is ablaze.

Fullofit, I’ll never understand HQ’s insistence on sending up planes in that pea soup, and it doesn’t matter which side of the mud your stationed on, they all do it. Beautiful screenshots. I assume Aldi and his crew treated their uninvited guest to dinner and drinks before sending him off to the higher-ups. Also, thanks for the monthly news, always nice to catch up on events.

Raine, Geoffrey has really found his stride, it’s no wonder Boom is taking notice of him now. His transfer to Camels is going to bring him a whole new style of combat in the air though, I hope he can adapt to it as he will soon have to fight his way out of every scrap he enters. The Camel is a deadly adversary in the right hands but you cannot run away from a tight spot with her. On a personal note, I hope you enjoy your upcoming trip. Do be sure and post many pictures here for us all to green over.

MFair, good to see you still hanging about. Congrats on Goddard achieving ace status.

Robert, Albert and his flight had some serious AA to deal with. The Hun gunners must have been using the height of the clouds above them to zero in on their targets as well as they did. Nice video and it shows clearly how nasty Archie was.

Wonderful reports as always Gents, thanks for sharing.

Banjoman, thanks for the stats. don't worry about last week. We appreciate what you do when you can. What's happening in sunny Guatemala. Is everyone there jealous of our snow? (Please change Gaston Yount's unit from N57 to SPA57. Thanks!)
Lou, unfortunately I don't know if Fitzerald was treated to any festivities, although I would assume so - Berthold was a nice guy after all biggrin . My sources only indicate that he was taken prisoner. When are we gonna hear from your pilot?
Canuck, close call on that first contact. Heed Lou's advice and give it beans!
Carrick, congrats on that first victory. I see you're finally getting some nice flying weather. Time to bring along some French girls for a walk. wink
