I've been a busy bee with FFA62, we seem to be plagued by Nieuports at the moment, nasty critters who have a tendency to flame your rear if you're not careful.
I did manage to bag one as the first picture shows but as my only witnesses were a herd of cows I'm not overly confident my claim will be confirmed.... especially as 'livestock' is not on the drop-down witness list.
As we passed into New Year 1916 it snowed, snowed and then snowed some more as you can see. However, it allowed for some lovely shadows as we took off.
"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."
