Dawn Patrol : The Sqn's 5 a/c caught and shot down 3 Monoplanes near Ypres today. I couldn't get in a shooting position as I was flying as wing man. We went thru Head on then our 3 a/c Top Cover a/c corkscrewed on to their tails . I saw all 3 e/a crash. 1 Dh-2 damaged.
Afternoon: Solo Patrol, Chased and shot at a 2 seat near our aerodrome. The rear gunner put holes in my fuel Tank forcing me down on a road. Cruses foiled again !
