Dudley Nightshade Flt Lt. 6 RNAS Petit-synthe, France
Feb 27, 1917.
B flight went Ballooning this morning. I was Tail end charlie and saw the Flight Commanders wing man get the Gas Bag. My kite got overstressed in the dive so popped over to a friendly Aerodrome. The ground Chaps said all the flying wires need to be braced.
