George Lyons Sergeant 3 RFC Chocques, Flanders May 1915
(Writer's Note: A two-fer!)
Sixty-fifth mission Friday 28 May AM...the usual crew ('Bay' and Reinard in one crate, me and Halifax in the other) to a usual spot on an art obs mission east of Loos. Weather was dicey, but the rain held off.
Got to the front after flying between two walls of clouds,
...Reinard dropped some bags, and we headed home.
Sixty-sixth mission Friday 28 PM...I guess they did not get enough information the first time as they sent us back to the exact same spot as they did in the morning just east of Loos. Weather was not as bad, but this time, both our machines struggled in the heavy air, and at times we were only about 4ooo feet above the front!
I'm a bit surprised we were not fired on, but we both made it out. Also, the path we took was a bit unusual heading to and from the front, and we needed a second pass to make it happen. Still, Reinard dropped some bags, and I hope the poor chaps on the ground were able to use the information to get the Bosche artillery.
The saga continues!
