Flight Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - 01 August 1916 (Mission 29)

After a day at the beach, it's back to the office ! I draw the afternoon flight and at 13:30 I take off as number two of a flight of five led again by Flight Cdr "Destructor" Whealdon. Mission is a reco over enemy ground units near Lens. We have an escort of five DH2 from Abeele.

Being number two means that Cdr Whealdon's observer will take the photos, while I watch his six, the DH2s are supposed to watch mine... We circle the target high (12000 ft) for 20 minutes, taking all kinds of pictures and head home to Coudekerque. Not one enemy plane in sight, maybe the Kaiser gave then two days off instead of just one ?
