Dudley Nightshade
A Sqn , 4th Wing
Petit-Synthe Flanders.

Oct 22, 1916.

Assigned as tail end charlie for the Sqn's 3 Aces in N-11's. I guess to show me the ropes ? However, Sure enough we ran into 3 Halb's Over the lines. 1 went home the other 2 were shot down. I had a chance and fired off 51 rds in bursts of 17. No hits. I watched as my Flt Leader flamed the one I was chasing.
