Posted for a Recon along with Sgt Kelly as Flight Leader. I say just plain bad luck. We had just got over the lines when The Ob in the other a/d waved to look below and I spotted 2 Monoplanes coming up fast. Kelly waved t o head home and that was the last I saw of him. I got one e/a attacking me ,but he went home after my gunner got off 19 rds. at him. We took a few hits ,but made it back. I heard that we had a sqn of machines with front firing guns. I need to trans fer.
