20.06.1916 - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque

Further to the previous stupid decisions of flight leaders, we are left with only 4 Strutters.
For the afternoon mission, I am sent alone on a bombing of ground units on the front near Bailleul. Weather with a dense cloud cover 3/5. I will be escorted by 5 N11s from RNAS 3. Flight A of 3 planes is sent on another mission.

At least alone I can decide for myself, and first decision is to skip the bl**dy climb over Dunkerque ! Catch up with the escort goes fine, bombing goes fine thks to a hole in the clouds ( 8 hits with 4 bombs from 8000 ft ).
On the way back we meet 2 Eindeckers in our lines who are after flight A. My 5 escorts send them down quickly.

Return to Coudekerque. Flight A has lost a plane and a team, the two other planes need repairs.
Missions cancelled for the 21st due to lack of planes.
