Jasta 15, Stenay Verdun

Balloon defense today

As they arrived near the balloon flak smoke was spotted down low. Fritz and crew dropped down to say hello and a large DF was on.

Jasta 15 handled the 5 SPADS well and eventually rtb. Long lines of trucks were traveling the roads near Stenay. "Heading to the front or retreating?", Fritz asked himself.

Fritz filed a claim, had it rejected due to the chaos of the DF, and was then informed he was promoted!
