The continuing Career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




29 Jul 1916 @ 05h15 bombing of Ghistelles Aerodrome

Escort of 6 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 out of Furnes.

Mesurier lead the flight with Shook, Hill, Myself, and Chadwick accompanying. A flight sent three Strutters for the second bomb run. On the approach to Ghistelles we encountered 6 EIIIs circling towards us but they would not attack..
Our bombing run was successful and we pummeled the aerodrome. All of us returned to base safely.

29 Jul 1916 @ 13h22 Bombing of enemy lines East of Bethune.

Escort of 2 Nieuport 11s from RNAS-1 out of Furnes.

Shook lead the flight with Hill, Myself, and Huskisson accompanying.
We had very heavy cloud cover approaching the target between 5000 and 6500 ft. We managed to find a slight hole in the clouds to allow us to unload our ordinance but were unable to determine if we hit the target. We say A flight pass us on our return and learned later that they nailed the target successfully. We all returned safely to base.
