Never a Dull day around here, They had a fire up at wing. IT seems that the Officer of the Day was shooting at some rats and hit an Oil Lamp and the whole shack went up. The fire took all our Sqn records of Kills, Flight time and Pay records. Hq send word down just to Do Over starting at zero on A/c Time, Pilot Times and Kills along with claims. As for Pay, they be giving us Part Payments till its all put right. I flew with B flight on Patrol this morning in Key's Keedle machine # red 3. Hes on leave in England.
