Our three a/c was on AF Patrol orbiting our base near Toul. Spotted nd attacked a Flight of 5 Hannover Types. Chased and engaged from toul to Nancy then I got the only Score on Zee flight. A Flamer, it just lit up the sky and burned all the way down. All our a/c had some holes.

October 8th

Rain, no flying yesterday and today. We're back at Rembercourt. Heavy drinking last night. I participated this time. Made a fool of myself. Doesn’t take much to drink myself under the table. Rick says I’m lucky to be such a cheap drunk. Very sick this morning until I took the hair of the dog. Going to stay out of the mess tonight.

New outfit joined the Group. 185th Aero Squadron, a special nightfighter outfit equipped with Boulton and Paul built Humps (1). Young bunch.

(1) Sopwith Camel, in this case Sopwith F 1 Camels.


October 9th

Squadron got 2 missions in the air, between rain. Went out on the 2nd patrol, about 2 pm. No EA sighted so we vented our wrath on ground targets. [Linked Image]

Whitey (1) and Bedroll (2) gone. Killed on the balloon attack at Dun (3) this afternoon.


(1) – 1st Lt Wilbert Wallace (Whitey) White Jr., served as C Flight commander, credited with 8 aerial combat victories. Killed 10 Oct 1918 near Dun-sur-Meuse During the same balloon attack which claimed 2nd Lt. Brotherton’s life, he sacrificed himself, colliding with a Fokker that was attacking a new pilot in his flight. He left a wife and 2 children.

(2) 2nd Lt. William E. ‘Bedroll’ Brotherton – C Flight, 3 aerial victories, KIA 10 Oct 1918. According to Cpt. Eddie Rickenbacker he was “diving upon a nested balloon through a hurricane of flaming projectiles. A flaming onion had pierced his wings and they were now ablaze. To add to his predicament, a Hun machine was behind his tail, firlng as he dived.”

(3) Dun-sur-Meuse

Friday, October 11th, 1918

Dud weather, spent most of the day with Pup out in the woods. She's not as playful was she was, getting older, like all of us. Ran with me along the game trails until we were both exhausted and drenched. Good for us both. She sleeps in Meissner's tent now. She never knows when I'm going to be around these days and it's quieter. There are 8 of us in this tent. Meissner made Captain.

They brought in a newbie, Sonny Hammonds, 1st Loot, transferred from a 2 seater squadron. Don't know which one, don't care. He's in our Flight, so he's in our tent. Took Dewey's cot, next to mine. There's no other place for him to bunk, of course, but I wanted to kill him. He tried to be friendly, I cut him off and walked away. Saw the others talking to him, he stays out of my way now. Maybe I can stand to look at him after awhile, but not now.

The papers are full of news about the peace talks but the war is still going on just the same. The doughs are going ahead in the Argonne but the Huns are digging in their heels hard. They're all but finished but don't have enough sense to know it.

Going back up to Brabant tomorrow. More low levels and sausage hunting, unless I miss my guess. I'm supposed to be getting a DSC for something, haven't seen the citation, don't really care right now.

Been tied up with work recently and just came back to catch up. Absolutely gutted to see Goode disappear. Limoges too.

I'm still musing about a new DiD after November 11. Do you think it's necessary to fly to a fixed calendar, or could we let each pilot start the war when the player wanted and proceed as quickly or slowly as life permits?

The latter option is more accommodating, but I have loved the uncertainty of the day-by-day format....is everyone going to make it back today...? Has somebody's number come up? It makes for an added sense of immersion for me personally wink
