Carrick, not to worry. Though Jackson is still groggy from the surgery, he was still conscious enough to notice his nurse is ugly as a D9 dozer with a root rake!


Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.

I cant seem to hit anything.

Dawn patrol: Spads on the left circling to get behind us. On the right a flight of Strutters. The Obt Lt and 1 other attacked them. ( 1 Lost Friederman) I broke into the Spads with 3 other DR I's No hits . I got behind one then he powered up and was gone.

AF Security: Spads head-on the their top cover joined in. a Lot of shooting and c lose calls no Victories for me although the flight claimed 1 Destroyed for 0 losses. I am lucky to be back.

May 7, 1918.

I was 3rd in the Vee Formation in a flight of 6. ObLt Going led us through thick cloud into the arms of Camels . They were close and firing. Turn and twist then loop and came out on a passing e/a fired off 2 40 rds bursts no hits then the E/a was gone.

Bagged a Spad He was low and alone ( Going Home ? ) so nosed down in a side pass the slid behind him. Held down the triggers one gun jammed but not before his wings parted and down he went over our side at the lines. ( Over 387 rds. )

Back from the UK and catching up...

Carrick, Luthor is doing very well in his tripe! Jerbear, very immersive reading. I really like your patient approach, and hope you're finding the payoff in your affinity for your character. Can't wait until Goode gets into action! MFair, I really felt for Jerod after the incident with Truit. Really good story. Fullofit, thanks again for the historical calendars! Hasse, great episode -- when Linder encounters his first Hun, the DFW. I continue to be incredibly impressed...


Geoffrey Corderoy's luck finally changed. After 13 consecutive rejections, he has now had four consecutive confirmations.


Diary of Maj. Geoffrey Corderoy, 70 Squadron RFC
Part 47: 28 December 1917 – 2 January 1918


28 December 1917 – Poperinghe aerodrome


The weather has turned very cold. The field is frozen and the ruts from our last period of wet weather are now solid ridges. Taking off hurts one’s teeth the undercarriage threatens to shatter before finally the Camel lifts off into the air.
COP to Lille sector this morning. We encountered a pair of Hun two-seaters and Seth-Smith bagged one. I fired more than 200 rounds at the other with no dramatic result.

Letters from home. Reggie has been posted to Egypt. With luck he’ll stay in the east, far from the beastly Huns. A neighbour’s son was killed.

29 December 1917

Shortly after eight we receive a call that some EA are patrolling over our lines at Messines and take to the air with all available men. There are six of us: me, Howsam, Quigley, Todd, Gorringe, and Aldred. I lead, turning south-southwest immediately after lifting off. We reach the lines at 6500 feet, still climbing directly into an intense low sun. There is not long to wait, for a gaggle of Albatri approaches from the north and makes two feints before dropping down on us.

The Huns lack guts this morning. All but three turn away after the briefest tangle. I see a Camel climbing onto the tail of an Albatros and make for the Hun, hoping to distract him and give the Camel a clear shot. It is Todd, I notice.

Suddenly there is a rattle of machine gun fire, very close, and bullets rip through my machine with a sound like pebbles thrown against a fence. I pull the stick back and kick the rudder, intending a snap roll, but the Camel simply sideslips and more round smash into it. My instruments are shattered and there are two large gouges in the right cabane nearest me. The Hun overshoots and turns off to my left and above. It is a black machine with a white band around the fuselage, just forward of the tail. I turn about. The engine is still giving good revs and the machine responds well. The Hun is coming at me head-on. I skid left, raking the Hun as he passes. Damage has been done, for it does not take great effort to close on the EA’s tail. Two long bursts cause the machine to fall in a spin, streaming grey smoke and spiralling ever downward until it hit the waters of the Lys with an impressive splash.

Peverell confirms this, my 38th official victory.

"Two long bursts cause the machine to fall in a spin, streaming grey smoke and spiralling ever downward until it hit the waters of the Lys with an impressive splash."

31 December 1917

The weather has closed in since yesterday, and we close out 1917 comfortably ensconced in the mess as the snow drifts over the fields. Flying is out of the question.

New Year’s promotions come in. Gorringe, Aldred, Peverell, Quigley, Hobson, and Howsam have all made lieutenant. Gorringe has been awarded the MC, and I have received a bar for mine. I shall try to get Gorringe made temporary captain as soon as possible as he will be a splendid flight commander.

We party until ten and stagger over to see the boys in 29 Squadron. I am back well after midnight. So this is 1918 – the fifth year of the war. Quigley is convinced that it will continue until 1920. I have told myself that it is merely a process to be endured and a business to be excelled at until it is done. It is all beyond our control.

Received a card from Catherine. It is very simple. She has written only that she understands and prays we will see each other in due course. Her acceptance surprises me somewhat.

1 January 1918

Just after the morning patrol went up, Wing called to demand that we put someone up to chase off a two seater over Vimy. I took Lieut. Carruthers, a new man, and the first four I found. Unfortunately, my engine went dud a few minutes into the patrol – cracked cylinder. I switched off and glided back. Carruthers accompanied me back, as he had been ordered to stay with me.

2 January 1918

COP to Vimy. Heavy snow and cloud and the whole show was pointless. We could not find each other, never mind the Hun.

May 8 1918.

We were flying a line patrol when I spotted 5 Spads diving oh our Top Cover to the Rear so popped over to help . Good little sparing match the 4 of us to 6 of them, but they tired of the game and powered up to speed home score 2 lt damage DR I's for ?

May 9, 1918.

The 5 of us were off with Lt Nuerhohten his attack style is the same as ObLt Goring ( who was with the cover flight ( they did not engage). He led us under a flight of SE,s as a flight of Spads ( blue stripes on top wings) circled around to dive on our tails. I pulled out of the formation in a flat turn and went head on with the e/a then dove for cloud cover only to get a Long Range shot , 149 rds, at a Spad low and in front of me. He started to leave a trail of black smoke then cartwheeled thru the sky to crash below near our AF at Passenchdale. What good luck. # 14.

Rain. All flights are cancelled. The ObLt is getting edgy with me. I am too close to his score of 18 Victorys .

Thanks Hellshade. Great reads all.

Jerod Jackson was back from the hospital and on his 70th mission met his demise. It never ceases to amaze me how fast one can go from a promising pilot to worm food in WOFFUE. I think, l do not know, that I miss judged my speed coming out of a dive bombing a rail junction. I heard a pop at the same time I seemed to black out. The Camel banked left and went into the ground. It did not take long at low altitude. At any rate, he is dead.

I will see you gents in a few weeks. Going to celebrate 40 years with the wife.

No!!!! It's so easy, though. I bent my Camel out of shape in a dogfight yesterday and was lucky not to meet the same fate. See you back soon. Enjoy your anniversary!
