Congrats for the medals! And special thanks to Lou for being the Gong Fairy of DID. Your medal art is beautiful. I really hope we'll see more Belgian gongs. They are my favourites.
In Julius's career, when I saw the news that his squadron would be equipped with the brand new Halberstadt D.II, I was very happy indeed.
But then this happened:
I literally burst out laughing when I saw it. Of course everybody and his dog gets his own Halby - except Julius. Now it's even more pointless trying to keep up with my flight members. It was already a struggle when they had the Fokker E.IV. But now... I don't know. This is going to be an interesting summer with the battle of the Somme about to begin soon.
