Sgt, RFC

Dec 22, 1916.

Balloon burst

B Flt: 5 A/c
Arm: Rockets and full machine guns loads.
T/O 0545 hrs.
WX: Low clouds but broken.

Remarks: I was flying Tail End and spotted 2 A/C High and to the East so popped up as High Cover. The e/a stayed away so reformed. My mates got the Air Bag amid Gun Fire. No fight with E/A developed so fired rockets at Known MG nests on the lines. One N-17 was lost due to ? Lumpy was seen waving as he lost height and crashed on the Hun Side Maybe POW ?
