The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:





20 Jul 1916 @ 15h27 Bombing Enemy Front Lines South of Diksmuide, East of De Blankaart lake.

Shook lead the mission with Hervey, Mesurier, Myself, and Huskisson accompanying.
A flight sent two covering Strutters flown by Soar and Hill. We also had two DH. 2 escort from RFC-29. The mission flight was quiet until we were approaching the target area. I spotted 5 EIIIs a short distance below and on my port side approaching us. I was anticipating an attack but they flew right on by us. I dont see how they could have missed us so they must have had something important on their minds. We bombed the target lines successfully and returned back to base. All the time I was watching for the EIIIs but no sight of them. When we got back to base we discovered that Soar and Hill got two EIIIs so I suspect they met the same group that passed us. The CO announced that Hill had been issued the Military Cross so we have cause to celebrate tonight.
