Sorry I've fallen behind on this. I like to fiddle, and Friday I tried to upgrade my computer and broke it instead. Replacement parts should be here tomorrow. I should be back online then and caught up in a few days. Meanwhile I'm posting from my local library.

Got my computer back yesterday. Very much upgraded processor and motherboard. I'm back in the game, as the saying goes.

Hauptmann Wilhelm Boelcke has been awarded the Iron Cross, 1st class, and apparently this has caused some stress between him and the other officers. Our outdoor games continue."

Noel Kay writes: "1559: Some rain, but still flying. Much artillery fire all down the line. 1 hour 9 minutes."

Pontfaverger
Odis Först writes: "Cloud cover still keeping us down. We had a treat today. Ltn and Hptmn Boelcke both showed up, along with a couple of other officers I don't know, and asked if they could join us! Of course we said yes. Hptmn Boelcke and one other were on our team and Ltn Boelcke and the other officer were on the other team. Sad to say we lost both games. Still and all, it was a great change to our everyday pace. One almost hopes it stays this way for a few more days. Almost. Flying is still much more fun."

The Boelcke brothers had business to take care of, and the others didn't show up without them. Starting to feel like we're going to live here forever, unless they transfer us to the infantry."

Thanks. Now that my main obligation is completed (chronicling day-by-day events of the war) I should be able to get caught up.
