I am finding real life duties cutting my flight time, like many others, so struggling to keep up. I will have to limit myself to one flight per day and skip the extra flights WOFF is throwing my way.

My two claims have been confirmed. I have been surprised that the two deaths at my hands has not weighed too heavily on me. I think tiredness and the loss of so many of our own pilots has hardened me to it all. They were trying to kill me, and I killed them.
A patrol of enemy lines this morning. Our group of four DH2s was not interfered with.
May 3: Patrol friendly front lines. We tangled with three Fokkers and got the better of them; McHard got one and I claimed one driven down out-of-control. McHard's was confirmed but mine was rejected as we did not see him crash and no other witnesses on the ground could be tracked down.
