The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:

7 Aug 1916 @ 06h38 Bomb enemy front lines east of Bethune. THe C.O. heard about my unauthorized flight
to Bertangles and my personal stash of single malts. I suspect he will be enjoying a bottle tonight at
my expense. I guess that's a reasonable price for not being disciplined!

I lead the flight with Parsons, Soar, and Mesurier accompanying. A flight sent two Strutters ahead of us for the first pass on the target.

The flight was uneventful until we bombed the target area. Upon return we encountered three EIIIs well below us trying to gain position to attack but we had altitude and speed and outran them. The bombing was successful and we had 50% hit rate.

7 Aug 1916 @ 14h19 Bomb enemy front lines South West of Messines

Hill lead the flight with myself, Hervey, Booker, Mesurier, and Shook accompanying.
We had 3 km winds from the WsW and scattered cumulous between 4000 and 5500 feet. The flight to the target was without enemy contact and the target was unobscured by cloud cover. We bombed successfully and returned to base safely.
