The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




21 Jul 1916 @ 05h22 Recon for vehicle movement Sout of Diksmuide, East of De Blankaart lake.

Soar lead the flight with Hill and myself accompanying.
Approaching the lines we encountered three Fokker EIIIs and Soar gave the signal to attack. I singled out one and continued an aggressive attack until he was forced down.
Circling I saw one of my mates being attacked by one of the EIIIs with another EIII staying high. I made a run to drive off the EIIIs attacking my mate. But the EIII and his top cover sbroke away and headed back across the lines. Later I realized it was Hill I went to protect and his plane was hit but he was able to make it back to Furnes to land.
I did not see Soar again until I got back to Coudekerque. He also took hits.
On my return flight after aiding Hill I headed for the nearest airfield at Furnes and on my approach I noted a single EIII making a run in my direction. I turned to attack and took some hits but managed to shoot him down.

The mission was successful overall.
