I've not had much time flying (overtime due to holidays) but that has been remedied by getting injured for 10 days wounded

I was leading a patrol and happened across two Aviatiks at only 9000ft. I attacked them, and got in an excellent position to hit the right hand machine. Stupidly, I didn't think that this put me in the sights of the observer on the left hand machine.

Blood spattered on my goggles I made it back safely. The flight did get the 2-seaters. Our new chap, McCudden has claimed one, but something tells me he won't officially be credited for it.
