Emile Benoit La Mont Sgt, N 26 St. Pol-sur-mer, AF Flanders, France
April 3, 1916.
Dawn Recon incomplete, I was solo and ran into a Monoplane. Rough fight Chandell after Chandell, turn after turn my Ob was getting off strings of 7-9 shots as we re positioned our a/c. Finally, after what seemed an hour and at the end of the second Drum of 303's, the e/a went into a spin and disappeared under a cloud. My ob thought he shot him down,but no one seen the crash. After landing, the Adj checked with Army units alas, No one found wreckage.
