I flew one long solo recon mission today. Nothing happened and I didn't even see any other aircraft, friendly or enemy.

When I returned to base, I was informed that the other flight of two Aviatiks was lost with four dead pilots and observers. Fortunately we had enough new replacements to keep flying, but only barely. I'd have hated to become grounded again!

My records show that since I started this DID campaign on June 17, MFFA 2 has suffered the following losses:

52 men dead
8 men wounded
26 Aviatiks destroyed
12 Aviatiks damaged

"Upon my word I've had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers."
