That's why God invented Schnaps....and Bratwurst mit Kartoffelchips meine kameraden. To keep us warm.

I succumbed to a transfer to FFA62, how could one miss the opportunity to fly with Boelcke and Immelmann notworthy

On my second sortie with them I spotted a lone BE2. I attacked out of the sun and must have clobbered the pilot because as I came around for a second pass he nosed over and went straight down.

"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."
