Flight Lt. Edward Eastwood.
We finally have enough pilots to put some machines into the war. B Flight, 3 machines to bomb front lines south of Diksmuide. 5 Nieuport escorts from RNAS 1 as escorts. Very good flight with no contact. A and B flights all return safely. CO says some ground units were damaged. "Congratulations." I was expecting an afternoon patrol but the CO says we can stand down but be ready to go in the morning.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
BOC Member since....I can't remember!
