14 July 1916.

The best laid plans ect. The Idea was to hit a enemy Rail-yard and Troll for enemy a/c at the same time by dropping Flares to attract them from neighboring Aerodromes. The problems encountered on the raid: Supply only had 1 Flare, Our cover flight of 3 machines lost us in the clouds before the target, No e/a came up, and the Route took us over enemy Archie near balloons at less the 2000ft. Results: Failure little damage to Rail-yard and 1 DH-2 lost ( POW ? ) seen to go down near the target.
