18 January 1915

The rain is again falling on Flanders, but the Verdun area has cleared up, if only for a day.

Odis Först writes: "0803: Clear enough to fly. Deep reconnaissance past Reims. 1 hour 52 minutes."

Noel Kay writes: "1417: Overcast but dry. Short patrol over the lines near Varennes-en-Argonne. 39 minutes."
