Sep 20, 1916.
Took one for the team today, we were on Defensive Patrol and found a flight of Hun Scouts shaped like a fish with squared wings. A general melee started going down to the deck. I got shot up and forced down near a friendly Aerodrome. He was all over me couldnt out turn or out run him. Only the fact that we had 8 a/c against their 3 saved me . The Medics said my wnd was slight but will be down for 10 days, The Score: 1 forced landing, 2 damaged with a pilot wnd. for ? All 3 of the e/a's were seen heading away for Hun land
