Sir, if this is about that unauthorized flight over to see the farm girls I can explain!

Haha - no, MFair, it only seemed that some number might be wrong in the chart;
numbers of missions and flight times mostly.
No idea what happened - everyone just fill in the hours, missions and victories
as they are shown in the logs.
Do NOT try to only count and report the additional numbers since the last report.

Here is the latest chart - some aircraft are still missing.

Olham, when you get a chance could you add the Wounded Stripe to the records of those flyers who were presented that honour earlier today. Many thanks Sir.

Flight Sub-Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - July 6, 1916

Weather has cleared up a bit and after two grounded days it's flyable again. There is still a thick cloud layer around 6000 ft.
Mission is bombing enemy ground units east of Ypres. We flew there, dropped bombs (no hit for me) and came back. No opposition encountered.

Not sure if they are recognisable in our chart - they are added now.
Further pilots are wounded, so I guess you will need to write more such letters.

Chart updated.

'TENSHION PLEASE, EVERYONE

If you like, you can give me a nationality for your fallen pilot - the country from
which he originates; like Canada or Australia. Also of course for Great Britain.
Then I'll add an according flag to the memorial.

Olham, if you use the 'tiny' image I posted to you yesterday over in our CA conversation it will show up better as it has the same background as the medals. Thanks again.

EDIT: The certificates for the award of the Wounded Stripe to Sgt. Agrayne and Sgt. Baggins have been added to the post made earlier today. The King thanks you for your sacrifice and service.

We'll keep Baggins British (plenty of shires), but I was just looking up J.R.R. Tolkien's bio for ideas:

Though born in South Africa, he came to Britain to stay at age 3 (c. 1895). He delayed enlisting until July 1915 to complete his degree and joined the Lancashire Fusiliers. He came to France on June 4, 1916 and is 'currently' participating in the Somme offensive as a signal officer. He will come down with trench fever on October 27 and be invalided to England on November 8 where he'll sit out the rest of the war between hospitals and home garrisons.

Algernon Didsworth is English. He is however, from the opposite end of the country from yours truly, I gave him a Kentish home town because I plan to tour around there later this year.

As I understand the Hobbits are based on Tolkien's impression of the people north of Birmingham. Counties have changed in the 70's, but this would make Bilbo a Shropshire lad in 1916.

The reason some pilots don't have an aircraft is that they captured their records before that was added to the web page. If they do another sortie and capture that they will have to get an aircraft as it is a compulsory question.

And I can fly again today having come out of hospital sicko

I know it's not a fault of your survey, Jim - that's why I asked here.

I still have to wait another full week - arghh!!

I'm grounded until July 13 with a nasty shoulder wound. These 10 days in the hospital stints are real morale killers. Enjoy your flight Jim.

We have a lot of wounded pilots if you look at the chart. Last I saw it was 9 wounded and 10 active. And two of those active pilots don't seem to fly at all. Which makes it 9 to 8! Dangerous business this Campaign wounded

They certainly are. Thankfully I have returned from mine now.

A good patrol today, we attacked two Eindeckers and got both. I didn't fire a shot, but instead covered the action from above.

On returning to Abeele, we found that we had unusual visitors.

RAF_Louvert has sent me a new graphic for the "Wounded Bar", so I have updated the chart with them.
Slowly but surely I am getting a certain routine in doing the job, but I must say, I was never
really the pen-pusher type; I'd much more love to fly again. Still a whole week to wait though...

Yeah, it's really tough to try to survive in WOFF. I'll be able to fly a mission tomorrow, and I *really* hope it won't turn into yet another slaughter in the air!

Hmm... I'll have to keep an eye out for pilots that go from being active to being wounded. And we will have to keep a tally of the number of times he is wounded. At the rate we are going some of our pilots will have more stripes than a USAF Master Sergeant!

Ok maybe we need another question - at the moment when a pilot is wounded I ask how many days he will be so. Maybe I should also ask how many times has he been wounded? I think I have to do that - easy for me. (Will give me something to do when I am next in dock old_simmer ).

Ok I have done it. So Olham will have to assign the wound stripes as well at the other things he does.

So the buck is passed to the pilots to keep track of wounds.

Olham, sorry to be a pita sometimes, but I see Mfair who is flying from Coudekerque as I do has some "hotspot hours". Flanders North does'nt get to be hotspot before April 1917 ! (except if he has moved somewhere else, but then he wouldn't be in RNAS 5 anymore...)
Not protesting, only for you to check if anything wrong.

Ok I have the following data for Mfair.
1) Albert Andrews 6 RFC Dead with 2.17 hours Flanders North.
2) Benjamin Bloodworth 6 RFC and then 24 RFC 2.73 hours Medium
3) Benjamin Bloodworth 24 RFC 11.03 hours 5.11 hotspot and 5.92 medium Dead hit Titanium Fence.
4) Charles Chatterly 5 RNAS 2.8 hours medium
5) Marc LeFair(?) 5 RNAS 6.58 hours medium
6) Charles Chatterly RFC 24 13.48 hours 1.26 hotspot Flanders South 12.22 medium now wounded from Bertangles.

See he has moved from 5 RNAS to 24 RFC.

Seems OK to me. No 5 was finger trouble.
