Over the line patrol today at 4500m. The weather was rough below, but we got above it. After reaching the patrol area, we circled around for a bit before pouncing on three Albatros scouts that my boys in the Nieuports made merry with. Unfortunately, that was before the four other Albatros showed up! I had two busy for a while before one dropped out and I was able to get some shots on the other. Saw one of my flight below and joined up with him and we headed for home. When we got back to the field, we found it was not a bad deal for us, two enemy down with a minor wounding on our side...
