1 April, 1916 9:40 Senard, Verdun Sector Escadrille N37 Sous Lietenent Gaston A. Voscadeaux 9 confirmed kills
Gaston's Fokker he chased yesterday was confirmed. It was a bitter sweet news. Cpl. Papinet died last night in the hospital.
This time the brass requested to conduct an attack on enemy rail system at Verdun North Spurline Junction. Gaston requested Le Prieur rockets to be loaded onto their planes. He would finally have the chance to test them in combat. Voscadeaux and his two wingmen arrived over target in record time. He was eager to test the new weapon and gave his flight mates the signal to attack. They all dove as one with Gaston in the lead. As they neared their target he’d noticed something that should not have been there. The flagpole in the middle of the square was flying the Tricolour! This was a French rail yard! Gaston pulled out of his dive and the two wingmen behind did as well, seeing the same thing as Gaston. They have averted a disaster! Voscadeaux was not amused. Who comes up with these targets? Germans? They've returned to their aerodrome without firing a shot.
