March 18, 1916.

Posted to a Arty Shoot and hit a Hole. Returning to Zee landing strip after a boring Arty flight, I started to loose power so headed for closest Flying Field. On touching down and still at 70 mph, I hit a bomb crater ( blast Hole ) Zee landing gear came off and we sled across 100 feet of dirt and grass. Both of us was shaken, but ok. Zee , Huns will get U one way or another. At lest 2 days down time.
