Odis Först writes: "What an honor! Ltn Boelcke came to me this morning and said we would be flying with him today! Further, he said I would be flight leader and he would follow me. Of course I was very nervous, but things went better than I could have hoped. We took off at 0940 and patrolled the lines from Bapaume down to Peronne, then home again. 2 hours 13 minutes."
