During the way back to home airfield, he was attacked with his comrades by a group of Fokker EIII over no man's land. His observer succeed to shoot down 2 ennemy aircrafts, but sergeant Alf Field has been injured during combat, and his plane has been severely damaged by ennemy ... Despite his injuries he tried landing in the NML, but he lost control of his aircraft and was instantly killed during the brutal crash like his observer ...

Sorry to hear about your pilot Piedro. It happens. Crank up your "B" pilot tomorrow and carry on!

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
