The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:



26 Jul 1916 @ 06h21 Railyard attack at Loos Junction

Escort of 3 DH. 2s from RFC-29 out of Abeele
Soar lead the flight with Mesurier, Myself and Huskisson accompanying.
We bombed the railyard successfully without encountering any enemy aircraft.
We returned to base successfully with no losses.

26 Jul 1916 @ 14h13 Artillery spotting south of Nieuport

Escort of 5 DH 2s from RFC-29 out of Abeele.
I lead the flight for the first time. Chadwick accompanied me.
We no sooner reached the coast to begin our climb when I had another Oil pressure failure and had to abandon mission and head back to base. The engine started to seize before I got there so I had to shut it down and coast in to land using sideslip to airspeed while loosing altitude. I made a successful landing without overshooting the runway and was expremely relieved when we stopped. My observer had to go change his underwear then we both went to the mess for a stiff scotch..
