1325: This is the second day in a row I’ve flown two missions. This one was tagging along with Lt Thayer on an Artillery Spotting mission east of Ypres. We saw our first enemy plane, at a distance. He saw us and scarpered. We had a job to do, so we didn’t get any closer. 2 hours 13 minutes.
Also noted that Sgt Billy Crowe, with less time than I have, is flying one of the new Bristol single-seaters. I’m not sure what to make of that, but, we do our job and don’t worry too much.

Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done
