Journal Entry: October 24, 1915
St. Pol-sur-Mer

Blast it all, I've had this wonderful new machine since the 20th and I haven't seen a blasted Hun. I'm dying to know how this kite will measure up against the new Hun monoplane and the new armed Aviatik. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day and maybe I'll get my chance then. I did have Corp. Tomlinson work his magic on my new kite and here she is in all of her glory. I never imagined that Tomlinson even knew who John Donne was and much less had read anything written by him. I really must stop prejudging the enlisted men - makes me look rather like a fool.
