9th June 1916. I set off with a flight of 5 FE2b's. I don't know what aircraft we were set upon by as I never saw them. I eventually dived right down to the ground and crash landed in a field (no fences). So I was a 'forced down' I suppose. 3 crews were dead and the other severely wounded. Apparently I had shot down an aircraft though I can't say I saw it. So I put in a claim form giving as a witness the one other surviving pilot. And so far I only have .8 hours flying time! At this rate I'll be lucky to last to Wednesday ...

This seems a bit low. Does 'air start' cut down your hours? I tend to do that because the beginnings of a sortie are quite boring.
