Army Hq called requesting a Recon of the lines by Loos. A flight put up 4 a/c as Cover for my 1 a/c.
as we neared the target area, my cover flight disappeared. I was able to avoid 3 Hun patrols,but could only stay near the area for a short time due to the German guns and a Scout patrol nosing around. Upon landing , I heard that my Top Cover was jumped by the Huns 3 light Damage 1 Heavy and forced down 2 pilots wnd. No e/a shot down.
