Flight LT. Edward Eastwood
Evening Patrol: FlightB consists of 4 machines. I make up FlightA by my lonesome. Arty spotting east of Ypres. 6 Nieuports will escort from RNAS1. No contact on mission. Returning to base we waited into the night before the CO declared B Flight missing. Hill and Chambers showed up in the wee hours of the morning and reported everyone else is dead. I fear this will be a long war. We do not have enough planes or pilots to put a force into the air. Major says it will be the 15th before we have enough pilots to fly. I could use the rest.

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