Maeran, your reports just get better and better!

Olham, glad to hear it's dangerous over your way too wink Viel Gluck!

MFair, Cam is jealous of your new gong. Doesn't have any bravery medals of his own, but the girls he's with say hello to Fabian.

Lou, you continue to amaze. Thank you.

Robert, one day I'll have to learn to make videos. Thanks for all the great entertainment. I'm finally getting a chance to catch up on the recent ones.

Sergent Alphonse Mouzon, January 12th, 1917, Fismes, Marne




"Yesterday morning, we ad our first mission from our new maison, in Fismes. It was a bombing run, on ze German airfield at Cuirieux, and I was appointed as ze flight leader. We ad an escort of three Nieuport 17s, from Escadrille 80, and after leading my squadron up to 7000 ft, we rendezvoused successfully with zem, just our side of ze lines. I sink we were very lucky, with ze cloud cover, zat we did not get too much flak on ze way. Also, we did not see any enemy aircraft, on ze way zere or on ze way back. I even managed to make some damage to the airfield... ce'st un miracle!" We got back in good time, and after I landed. I was appy to seethe ozzers in my flight arrive ome safely. Owever, it is only a matter of time now, I feel, until we meet wiz ze enemy. We must stay sharp!"

Getting busy at Fismes aerodrome! Welcome Brain deBois Guilbare and Alphonse Mouzon ! The lads in Escadrille 76 will keep an keen eye out for the Hun for you while you run your operations from our tiny corner of the front. cheers

Adjunt Ashton Maclareux

Fismes aerodrome, Marne region


January 11, 1917
The boys of the Esc76 were tasked with destroying a German observation balloon just a few miles north of our field here at Fismes. I led a flight of 3 nieuport scouts along with Geoffrey Desramee and Niels Leth Jensen. We climbed to 2000meters and headed over the lines. Just as we were passing over no mans land I spotted 5 enemy machines above us and headed in the opposite direction. Three boche two seaters escorted by two halberstadts. I was content with leaving them to their business as they were too far above us to effectively engage, and we had our own business to attend to. Just then one of the enemy scouts dropped out of formation and dove on Corporal Desramee. A short fight ensued which resulted in Sergent Jensen knocking the enemy out of the air.
I had lost sight of Corporal Desramee so only Sergent Jensen and I continued on to our target. We made short work of the defenseless observation balloon and watched with great satisfaction as it burned up and crashed to the ground. On our return leg I decided to climb to 3000meters and hunt for the flight of two seaters that we had passed enroute. Unfortunately the cloud cover was too dense and we had no luck finding them in the weather. We landed with no further incident and found Geoffrey already warming the coffee for us.

Scouting for the enemy flight near our field at Fismes.


January 12, 1917
Today we were tasked with a patrol of the front lines near Laon. Only a few short miles from our field my engine started to shudder and I lost almost all power. Waiving to Geoffrey I dropped out of formation and managed to limp home and land safely. With only 7 operational nieuport machines available to us at the time being I'm hoping the diagnosis is not too bad.

January 13, 1917
Once again we set out to patrol the front lines near Laon. After patrolling for nearly an hour, Capitaine Rene Doumer turned the flight for home, then abruptly rolled over and dove on a flight of three enemy two seaters that seemed to appear out of nowhere. Scoring hits on his first pass, Capitaine Doumer was hit and his machine started smoking quite badly and I knew he was turning for home. Sergent Niels Leth Jensen and I picked out an enemy machine that had fallen out of formation and took turns making slashing attacks while trying to keep out of the firing arc of the rear gunner.
The enemy machine started smoking and losing altitude at a rapid pace and I knew he would surely not make it home. I climbed up to rejoin the flight and watched as the boche craft smashed into some buildings on the outskirts of Laon.
After we landed Sergent Jensen claimed the victory. I was just happy to see Capitaine Doumer's nieuport on the field.

Great reads as always Gents.


Robert, well done on besting Voss. Youre quite right too about the devs attention to detail on such things. Also, lets hope Travers and Mack made it down OK.

Maeran, wonderful write-ups. And Quirks for Harry Tates? Think Id prefer to keep the latter. But lucky you on the transfer to Pups, they are a treat!

Olham, best of luck with Jasta 17. Heres hoping Edzard has a long career, (heed Hasses advice). Too bad about coming late to the Zeppelin party, but well done saving your wing mate from that Strutter.

Carrick, good luck to you as well with your new assignment at Esc 48. As Ive said before the N17 is a wonderful kite and one of my personal favorites.

Raine, another superb story. And has been noted already, your research into the historic details comes through in your writing with flying colours.

HarryH, another good report. Love that flight line shot of the Strutters.

Macklroy, youre right, it is busy at Fismus. Good AARs and screenshots. Looks like Ashton is getting comfortable with the Nieup.

Hi Folks...from Barbados

Albert Ward has been given special dispensation to visit his uncle who owns the Mount Gay Rum distillery in Barbados.The official purpose of the visit is as a naval representative for the acquisition of sufficient stores for the ongoing supply needs during the war. His uncle being an astute negotiator insisted the Albert be granted leave to address this need. The British Consolate here and the Naval brass saw fit to grant Albert the necessary time and dispatched him quickly on their fastest destroyer. He is expected back at RNAS-3 by Jan 22nd. Albert was loathe to leave the front but saw fit to sacrifice on behalf of the war effort!

Hey, Robert - are you REALLY in Barbados?!?
I had thought you were the whisky type, but from Hasse I know that a good rum is something special too.
Good combination of logistics and pleasure in Ward's case - carry on and have fun!

Enjoy the rest Robert. I am sure there will be plenty of flying to do when you get back. I guess rum and a English RNAS squadron go together well.

Aaaaah, now there's the life. Sitting on Brandons Beach, sipping the local rum, thoughtfully brought to you by a lovely local girl. And Mushroom will be back from that 'assignment' by next week? Sure he will.

Robert, it seems that you've moved from No 3 Naval to the North Atlantic Squadron.

For our non-Canadian friends, "North Atlantic Squadron" is a classic below-decks song of the Royal Canadian Navy. The chorus is the cleanest part of this otherwise completely filthy masterpiece:

Away, away with fife and drum
Here we come, full of rum
Looking for women who peddle their bum
To the North Atlantic Squadron.


Good hunting, my friend!

Your link has a 404 error Robert. Is it so bad that dropbox are censoring it?

A friend of mine prefers Mount Gay rum to anything else. I'm not a rum drinker myself, but reckon it will do as aviation fuel.

"It's a firework rocket basically." 2nd Lieutenant Stewart explained to Sergeant West.

The Le Prieur rockets were mounted on the wing struts in four angled rungs, like a particularly dangerous ladder.

"We dive on the balloon, and when we're very close, you hit this switch here." He leaned into his cockpit and pointed out the switch. "You have to be less than 130 yards because a firework is not an accurate weapon. You also have to hold your nerve and your aim while the rockets fire. Individual rockets can be a bit variable in how quickly they go off." West looked a bit worried as he took this new information in. His flight commander grinned. "Not that I'm expecting you to actually shoot yours today. I'm making the attack and I want you to stay above and make sure no nasty surprises come at me while I do it."

The winter skies were uncharacteristically clear as the four pups crossed the lines. The balloon at Remy was clearly visible against the white snow fields of Belgium, although it was in fact a few miles away.

Against expectation, Stewart gave the return to base signal and turned around. West couldn't really understand why. He could see four dots approaching from the north, but these were low and in any case the odds were balanced. Oh, well. West turned for home.

As the flight approached Chipilly, West saw an aeroplane following them, about a mile behind. Rather than begin the descent, he made a climbing turn and went to meet the intruder. West's finger was on the trigger and as the Albatros swept past he fired a burst at it. To no effect.

Cadogan and the Albatros whirled around a few times, and the superiority of the pup in a turn was obvious. He tried a few bursts but could see no damage.

The German had apparently hoped to surprise them and catch them napping as they landed. This wasn't the fight he wanted. He dived east and flew in a straight line away from Cadogan. Cadogan tried to give chase, but slowly the gap widened and eventually West gave up and returned to Chipilly.

West landed as the Caudrons of Escadrille 21 were going through their pre-flight checks. Stewart and Sutton had been watching for his return.

"Catch anything?" Stewart shouted, as West left the air mechanics to wheel his pup into the hangar.
"No." West undid his helmet and bundled it with his gloves in one hand. "I should have got him on the turn. Once he ran, I could never catch him."
"That's a lesson learned. Do you realise why I turned back?"
"No. There were four of them and four of us. We could have taken them."
"We were outnumbered. Four of them and the balloon defences against the four of us. Don't worry! We shall go and get it soon enough. If you hurry and get cleaned up, the tea in the pot may still be hot!"

Due to an Error that apperas to be to much of a hassle to fix. I will be killing off Brain de bois Guilbare as my pilot and will be starting with a new pilot. Probably an American flying with the French or British. duckhunter goodnight

Cam Fraser is alive and well in London, and hob-knobbing it with the rich and famous...

14 January 1917
London, England

Hi kid,

Okay, so youve told me Im an idiot often enough it should have sunk in, but now I know you were correct. I headed out to meet my old observer Quentin Salisbury at the Rag yesterday, which I presumed to be a bar or dance club. Turns out for some reason only the Brits understand that the Rag is another name for the Army and Navy Club, an intensely posh locale rotten with generals and admirals. I was limping up and down Pall Mall (Ive got rid of the crutches and borrowed a walking stick from Dr Herring) with a piece of paper in hand when Quentin steps outside and shouts Get in here, you fool.

Over lunch we caught up. Hes off to the RNAS flying school in Redcar, Yorkshire. He wants to get back to France as soon as possible. I tried to convince him to steer towards flying boats. Thats the future of commercial aviation, which will be quite the thing after the war. We even chatted about going into business together if we both stay in one piece.

I mentioned my DSC. Where is it? he asked me, and I told him it had not been issued to me yet. So Salisbury announced that he will see to it at once and rose from the table. He walked over to an older, ruddy-faced gentleman in a business suit dining alone across the room. Quentin sat at the mans table and, after a minute, waved for me to join them.

The gentleman was introduced as Rear-Admiral Sir John de Robeck. He has a shock of unruly white hair and a face like the map of Ireland, where he is apparently from originally. I had never met an admiral before, not to mention a Lord, and immediately stood to attention, but the fellow laughed and said, Not in the Club! For Gods sake, son, not in the Club!

Admiral de Robeck was the commander of the fleet that attempted to force the Dardanelles in 1915. Quentins explained that his father (a solicitor) had assisted the admiral in the past and is an old friend.

Young Salisbury here tells me youve got the DSC. Good show! You need to get it up, he said, pointing at my medal-less No 3 jacket.

I was trying to be diplomatic, but Quentin asked him directly about what happened in the Dardanelles. The good admiral said how hed been told the channel was swept of mines, but after losing several capital ships to a very un-swept minefield he pulled back. Churchill, the first lord, was furious with him and even his own chief of staff failed to support him. The papers have savaged me in London, he said. I blame that pup Churchill. At least he's sacked and we've seen the last of him. The Admiral said we were the first people hed had the pleasure of dining with in public since coming to London three days ago. "Never in the history of the Royal Navy has an admiral given thanks for the company of a Sub-Lieutenant!" is how he put it. We had several drinks, which the noble and glorious man put on his own chit, and he grilled us about life in the air service.

Ill have your medal sent to Mr. Salisburys house tomorrow, he suddenly announced, standing up (Quentin has invited me to his familys country home on Tuesday next, as he wants me to see what real English life is like). Where are you staying in town? the Admiral then asked. I gave him Dr. Herrings address on Weymouth Street. Ill send a man to you with the ribbon today. Get the damned thing up.

A wonderful man, the admiral. At least theyve given him command of a battle squadron of the Grand Fleet. I hope he has a chance to avenge himself and his reputation.

Dr and Mrs Herrings convalescent home is very comfortable. Mrs Herrings society friends drop by to do their bit for the war effort and are most friendly. I have had many more invitations to tea that I can cope with. The good doctor comes home late from his club, and he and I share drinks and talk until after midnight. He is incensed about the Donington Hall affair. If the Halifax papers havent run the story, apparently Prime Minister Asquiths daughter was engaged before the war to a German admirals son whose submarine was captured. Miss and Mrs Asquith are said to be frequent visitors to Donington Hall, the manor house where the German officers are housed. Rumour has it that they have been dining and playing tennis with the enemy! Or so the papers claim. Mrs Asquith is threatening to sue for libel, and the doctor is enjoying the whole thing immensely.

From what I read in the papers about how enjoyable life at the front is and how superior British planes are to the Huns aircraft, I rather think Mrs Asquith will win her case!

I am finally going to see Chu Chin Chow at His Majestys theatre tonight. The record is so popular back in the wardroom at St-Pol that I already know the songs. Your letters are probably piling up at the squadron (wishful thinking).

Kick the cat for me,

Cam



Pall Mall -- the Army and Navy Club is on the right

@ Macklroy, Thank you for your hospitality! Pretty Sure Alphonse caught sight of your Nupe, as he came into land the other day!

@ Lou, thanks! Nice plane, the Strutter. I'm expecting one day soon, to see how my observer performs in it!

Maeran, your nice well-illustrating write-up was a good read with my morning coffee.

Carrick, when you lost your pilot to error-trouble, you may start another one with a "B"-name, okay?

Raine, you're a good writer, Sir, and your reports and letters are full of historical major and minor detail,
like a box of chocolates. So now I know where Arthur Gould Lee's name "Chu Chin Chow" came from,
which he wrote on his Sopwith Pup. Helps a boche Hun to understand the British and their world.

It was a musical adaptation of Ali Baba and the 40 thieves. To be honest the songs weren't anything special (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws7Wda7eisM), but when it came out in 1916 it gained huge popularity and continued to be popular for over a decade. This might have had something to do with the state of (un)dress of the harem girls, but of course I couldn't comment.
