Sergent Bastien Salmet, N 26, St-Pol-Sur_Mer. March 11th 1916.
"Well we definitely got this one!" exclaimed Bastien to his observer. "Good shooting Roy!".
Same kind of mission as yesterday, behind the lines patrol down to our field at St Omer. Same scenario as yesterday, a lone Eindecker appears out of nowhere, looking for trouble. Same maneuver - turn sharp left, get him into my observer's gun sights for him to blast away. This time though, the Hun plane quickly goes into a wild spin and heads earthwards. We follow down and confirm the location of the crash. Let's see if we get the victory. No witnesses, but I'm guessing they saw it go down from St-Omer airfield.
