4 & 5 March, 1916
Senard, Verdun Sector
Escadrille N37
Adjutant Gaston A. Voscadeaux

La Météo calls for heavy snowfalls for the next two days. For obvious reasons flight missions have been suspended.
Gaston found an interesting article in Le Figaro. It stated in bold letters a most welcome news. Hold on to your seats! The German air superiority is waning due to the introduction of Nieuport BB. The new scout supposedly flies circles around the obsolete Fokker. Well, Gaston hasn't seen these new wonder-weapons, just as he has not seen the Fokker Scourge being curtailed. The Eindeckers attack slow and ungainly two-seaters, not other scouts. Gaston’s jaded opinion of the article is that it is nothing but propaganda.
On a positive note, Cpl. Dreux, Gaston's wingman had his Aviatik confirmed today. He was also awarded a Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur. If he keeps it up, Gaston will be his wingman. Thank God for the snow. There will be a serious bash tonight.

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