Has anybody got the Military Cross in WOFF? It seems that the first award for British pilots is always the DSO, which shouldn't be the case (especially if you're not an officer, but let's not go there...) smile

Lou cares to award everyone, when he achieved the according deeds and feat.
In your log, you still have this medal from WOFF now, and that's okay and may be celebrated.
But to really receive this medal in the DiD Campaign, you may have to carry on a bit longer.
Sorry, mate - but I see, you are getting there anyway; only a bit longer.


Lou already gave me a DSC a few days ago, so the party will be for both. Any opportunity for a party is always welcome. smile2

Damn, yes, you're right, Corsaire!
I make the graphic version of the chart, but that doesn't mean that I am always aware of every detail.
My mistake.
So congrats again - you sure deserved it!

Well, I'm wounded anyway.
But that allows me to fly my two Albatros D.V pilots at Jasta 15 and Jasta 23 a bit.

Another day of Rain. Its scattered here but the towards the Lines its socked.

The Intell people passed around a picture of a New Enemy air machine. They were asking if we have seen the type.


uploading pictures

Then an odd thing, The Hq Mobile Communication Van set up outside our flight shack. The Bird-men said it was just Training but I think it was just Messy. Its just not Cricket to move Hq's.

Continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward

19 Jul 1916 @ 06h55 Bomb Enemy Front Lines South of Diksmuide.

Hervey lead the flight with Shook, Soar, Booker, Mesurier, and myself accompanying.
We had 4 DH.2 escorting from RFC-32.
As we approached the lines we encountered two Fokker EIIIs well below us on my port side. We carried on and bombed the target area successfully and then we quickly encountered six more EIIIs coming in to attack. I broke with the squadron and attacked a lone EIII separated from the others. We danced a bit until I sent him down engine smoking.
Turning I saw activity further north of the line and in pursuing to join my squad I ran into two more EIIIs. I attacked one and was happy to learn the other left us alone. I shot my opponent up and saw his prop stop rotating so I advanced on the other EIII and shot him down as well. I was then alone and headed WNW to catch up with the squadron. I arrived back at Coudekerque just in time to see the squad formed up to land.
None of us was hurt on the mission and all aircraft were un-damaged. All in all a successful flight. There will be some celebrating in the mess tonight!

The following video has some erratic behavior in it which I think is attributable to Ankor's latest mod.

Very strange - I have never seen such behaviour before!
It seemed to happen mostly over and close to your airfield.

Robert, I just realised your pilot's name is "Ward".
Sorry, but in the EXCEL chart I received his name was written as 'Albert "Mushroom" Ball'.
Will be corrected into "Ward" in the next chart, okay?

Sehr geehrte Frau Gaertner,

das Kriegsministerium und die kaiserliche Familie bedauert Ihnen mitteilen zu mssen,

das Ihr Sohn

Anton Gaertner

am 19. 7. 1916 gefallen ist. Leider knnen wir Ihnen keine nheren Umstnde zu seinem Tod mitteilen.

Hochachtungvoll

Der Kriegsminister

In short, A Gaertner died after 32 min of flight, over the designated area, as he was told to spot enemy artillery on a solo mission in his Roland cII. He was jumped by a single N11. Observer didnt hit the braodside of a barn, locked the MG, so the Brit just had plenty of time, ventilating me. Crashed in to the frontline, died, my Observer survived.

Sorry about that early demise, LtCasey - I had a similar start with Kasta 8 at Verdun.

My advices:

- fly higher than your orders say
- fly away from lower attackers approaching you
- dive away from higher attackers, into own terrain (go all the way to the deck, if you must,
and zigzagg there to an army or balloon base or an airfield - their defensive fire will
occupy your attacker)

It is a hard life at the Western front.

*****

Thanks, Lou, I'll add it in the chart!

Thanks, Corsaire - yes, I updated several times on that day.
In future I may only show the chart in post #1, and a quick link to there.

Lou, I guess it may feel a bit peculiar for a 'humble man' to award medals to his own pilot;
but I can see and I'm sure you deserved this medal so well - congratulations!

Ok Anton, I got your capture and you have been added to the list of 'Dead' pilots. Just join in as a first name 'B' pilot and have another go. Remember that you can join as any nationality and difficulty level. Best of luck!

ps. I don't do solo missions as they are suicide skullhead

Reading my history books about the SPAD VII I found it was first flown by Lieutenant Armand Pinsard of ESC 26. He got the first confirmed victory on 23 August 1916. So I was thinking to change nationalities soon.

So I go and check with WOFF and find that I can only fly the SPAD VII with Esc 26 on the 25th of September ....

Well, maybe Pinsard had the first one, but the whole Escadrille was only
equipped with them until a month later?
