Lou, finally some nice weather and the sun! Why do you think you were not attacked this time? The little Fokkers can't hide in the clouds? Maybe Huns are like Orcs and hate the sun? Hope this weather holds.
Scout, that are some terrible flying conditions. Cheer up, it looks like the weather will improve and soon.

Senard, Verdun Sector
Escadrille N37
Sergent Gaston A. Voscadeaux

The French trenches were abuzz with Joffre’s new orders. There will be no retreat at Verdun. Any commander who retreats will be court-martialed.

It was no different in the air. With beautiful weather, reconnaissance missions above the front lines have been stepped up. Gaston’s flight took him north of St. Mihiel salient. With three-element escort no Boche pilot dared approach them. It was another successful mission. The brass will have something to be cheerful about.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
