Journal Entry: October 9, 1915

I do believe our beloved and trusty Morane L's have about given all they can give in this nasty little war. I haven't seen hide nor hair of a Hun since September 25, but I saw one today. We were returning from an artillery shoot down near Loos and off to the west I spotted one of the new Aviatiks. I signaled the flight and we began to position ourselves to attack. The Hun wasn't having any of that and simply flew away, my poor old Morane couldn't keep up. I don't know what more we can do with these outdated machines. The old man stated on our return, 'that we should be getting new kites in less than a fortnight'. I certainly hope that is true because it's hard to fight a war when your enemy can simply run away.
