George Lyons Sergeant 3 RFC Chocques, Flanders May 1915
(Writre's note: a two-fer, and my DiD campaign is a bit stalled waiting for the calendar to catch up)
Fifty-third mission Saturday 22 May AM...A bombing mission to one of our usual spots, the front lines east of Loos.
Still haven't managed to score any hits on the Bosche installations at the front.
Also, we were what I considered to be a bit low at only 5ooo feet (Writer's note: actual WOFF:UE assignment), but fortunately no machine gun fire nor archie to speak of. Ah yes, and then just as we were landing, a splat of petrol landed on my windshield! Ack emmas tell me that a fuel line had become severed (again), but it was an easy fix and there would be no need for extended maintenance on our machine.
Fifty-fourth mission Saturday 22 May PM...an art obs with 'Bay' and Reinard leading the way, and Halifax in our bus of course. We tried a new formation, I guess it could best be called an in-line formation, where I followed right behind 'Bay' and his machine, however, a couple times we got a little too close to one another, and we will likely go back to chevron style, except for bombing when right over a target.
Otherwise, Reinard saw some targets and dropped a couple of bags, and we headed home.
