Dudley Nightshade Flt Lt. 6 RNAS Petit-synthe, France
March 2, 1917.
The Sqn was covering Aerodromes again, I was Tail End to 6 A/c . Spotted a speck in the clouds off to Port amid Archie bursts. Alerted the the Flight by firing off 9 rds,but I as to far behind. They headed home while I broke off. The speck turned into 3 E/a finishing off two Fee's. As they formed up I took the closest and gave him a drum of 303's. I stayed high and reloaded then Chandeled down firing as I over flew him. Clearing my tail, I lost him in low cloud and blowing snow.. Upon landing I put in a claim only to have it rejected.
