Well, it's good to hear you didn't lose anything extremely valuable to the flood, Lou! No floods here, though otherwise the summer has been colder than in many years.

Damn weather ruins the DiD campaign too! When I have enough pilots and machines to continue, I can't because of the rain! Bugger!

Good thing you had a backup pump Lou! Stay dry!

My pilot is thinking about a transfer to the quiet sector to calm his nerves and become better acquainted with his Roland, BBW. Is he allowed to transfer to Kasta 11 currently based in Freiburg when he hasn't totaled up 3 hours in Kasta 34b?

Sorry to hear of your troubles Lou, Hope you dry out soon.

Stay dry Lou!

I see no reason why you can't transfer to a quieter region if you feel the need Mudwasp. In campaign terms you pay for it in points and in the game you could imagine your influential uncle pulled some strings.

But I ended up flying 3 missions between transfer request and confimation, so you could be better off holding on for a scout

The Kommandant bribed Aarik to stay on. Actually i created a non DiD pilot in that squad and they fly crazy long flights 2 and 3 times the Rolands range, so it's a no-go.

Lou, I hope that your home owners covers the cost of a replacement furnace and water heater.

cptroyce, I'll add him on Wednesday then - it seems to grow over my head.

MudWasp, most awards will be given to the pilots by the "DiD Awards Committee", which is actualy Lou.
But all awards should still be reported, especially smaller ones, like "Ehrenbecher".

Lou, you told me before in the PM about the flooding. I can only hope that it will all dry off well.
Here in Germany we had several great floodings during the last 12 years, and some people had them
twice or three times. I don't know how to bear that.

Seems the weather is even effecting both our real and our sim lives...

I have not looked at the weather for the 24th Maeran. I hate to hear that as I was flying my DID campaign at night this week as I am literally making hay during the day. Drinks are on me in the mess mates, no telling who's chair will be empty tomorrow!

How I miss the sounds of a/c motors and the commotion around an aerodrome. Still on sick leave I have noticed a slight difference between a warrior's life and a citizen.

Basel Brush is from Canada, I see? Well, he looks like a real trapper indeed!
Nice to see a Morane Parasol here!
Nice reports and pictures, lederhosen & Corsaire!

*****

On my latest sortie I must have achieved my weirdest victory ever!
And look, whom I have shot down...!

PILOT NOTES
Offzstv. Berhard Harms, Kasta 18
Pronville, 25. Juni 1916

Hauptmann Gunther Baermann and I were on a reconnaissance between Arras and Bapaume.
Baermann flew at 2000, and I was at 2500 Meters, and all went fine first.
But then our A-flight, a single Roland C.II for our protection, went lower and lower north of Miraumont.
Soon we saw why - two Sopwith Triplanes were turning with a single Fokker Eindecker low.
One left, while I came down lower.

No idea why Schuster joined in, but soon he got in trouble himself - the Triplane attacked him fiercely!
Both German planes and all their guns were not enough to control that three-winged devil, and so I went
lower and lower, to help our men out.
Soon I saw Schuster crawling back over the lines - he had to put his Roland down, due to engine damage.

Each time I apparoached the Tripe, it turned towards me, and I had to pull up again.
But then he ran after the Eindecker, at tree-top level, and I curved in behind him.
Now or never, I thought. Closer and closer I came!
I saw the Triplane firing after the Eindecker, which now tried to land.
He summersaulted in the mud!
In the same moment I fired at the Triplane from ca. 50 Meters behind.

I must have hit the pilot - the craft nosed right in after my burst.
I had not only achieved a victory - it was even against the most notorious scout the British have now!
On returning we were received with a loud "hello!" from everybody!
Our frontline troops had already called and confirmed my victory!

Now, I don't really believe it was all my success - the Fokker must have hit the Tripe before.
But the poor feller broke his neck in the crashlanding - and so I am the lucky winner!
That's war...

Well done Olham! That pilot you shot down is quite a pilot and an interesting character.
