Sgt, Almost There
2 Sqn, Rfc

June 21, 1915.

I was finishing up a Photo Recon Hop near Messines when a Oil lines blew. I had bags of altitude so put down on our side on a dirt road. My gunner found that the oil line fitting came loose so the rubber hose just slid off and dumped most of the oil. Good thing I shut it down quickly. A farmer gave us the use of a cart so we could find a phone and call base.
