Flight Sub-Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - 23 June 1916

Today is morning mission : Reco over ground units west of Ypres.

Same story as yesterday, my two flight mates go "gung-ho" after some Eindeckers. I do the job of taking pictures above the enemy ground units.

As I turn around west, I see under me my leader with a Fokker in his six. I go down behind the hun who is focused on his prey. I let him have it and watch him go down to the ground.

I land back at Coudekerque to bring back the pictures, my leader Flight Lt Boyd lands at Bailleul. Unfortunately the other wingman Nathan Ada and his observer will never come back.

I open my victory counter ! Afternoon missions cancelled due to lack of flyable planes.
