Did I hear "drinks"?!?

Congratulations, lederhosen and Lou - 25 and 50 hours - those are great achievements!
I think you'll have to send me a new ribbon with 2 bars for yourself, Lou.

lederhosen, I'm a bit confused, when I see that pilot photo in your pilot book.
Incredible who they all take in to the British air services - tch!
But it seems to have been a good choice so far, nevermind!

I saw it coming when I saw the name in the first place.
Basil Brush

Well done everyone on the hours and victories. More reason to celebrate now, as Algy has been promoted.



Our last mission was an attack on Houplin. We didn't hit whatever it is we are supposed to hit with just bullets and must go again. Anyone know what I am supposed to damage to get out of an endless loop of ground fire?

I don't want to be doing this twice a day.

Ah, now I watched some "Basil Brush" videos, and I saw there is still so much to discover
in the British media for a German...!

The 70s (and 80s) were a different time for children's television. But Basil has made a comeback in recent years. The new Basil seems to have put on a bit of weight.

I recall watching Basil Brush regularly in the NCO club at one of the RAF bases I served at in England in the mid-1970s. Every time he'd laugh and say "Boom boom!" we had to take a drink and yell "Boom boom!" back. Amazing how many times that furry little bastige could say that catch phrase in a half hour episode.

I had to cut mission 13 short due to thunderstorms.

Mission 14 was a balloon busting task with all 5 of us. As I expected we didn't make it to the front when I saw the flight below and in front of me change course. Nieups attacking, looks like 3, I join and help sending off one, then another which I later take out with a close to head on attack putting out his engine.

I look around to see no one left and head for home. Closer to home black flak smoke tells me enemy ahead. Turns out he was chasing one of us home. Both planes were seen as smoking wrecks when close to home. Debriefing shows all died but me. Now grounded due to lack of pilots.

how do you print screen

Morning Recon Escort to Monchy. Although I was #3 on take off, I soon fell into Tail end Charlie for the Flight.

No sign of the Recon ships so continued to No Mans Land. My flight of 5 were soon diving on 2 Bosch Machines. I went down to help the C.O. who having Trouble. The Grinder went from 7000ft down to the deck. I used 152 rounds and got hits on each pass ( I took a total of 10 hits from the enemy. My back seater fire 17 rounds. Then the Fokker fell out of the sky and crashed near Vasst and monchy. Results 2 Huns down for 2 a/c lt. damage. ( one is mine)

Closing in on 25 carrick. Keep your eyes peeled and fly smart.

Charles Chatterley was introduced to the "spin of death" in a DH2 today. He had always been able to recover from a spin in the DH but not today. Patrolling friendly lines should have been a walk in the park. Attacked 2 Rolands with 3 more of our flight. Good odds, but a moments laps in concentration or overconfidence and he went into a spin, recovered, then wham! Round and round she went until he buried himself in the mud. Damned frustrating! I am getting a whole new respect for you living pilots.

I am getting better, I think, do we get any medal for being the 1st "D" pilot? Nothing about spins and bad flying in the survey so I put "shot down by aircraft" as that is the closest thing to what happened.

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward




20 Jul 1916 @ 07h06 Recon of lines south of Diksmuide, due east of De Blankaart

Hill lead the flight with Huskisson and myself accompanying. "A" flight sent 4 Strutters as support. About 26 minutes into the flight Huskisson started having engine problems and turned around to return to base. We carried on with the mission arriving at the lines when A flight veered North to deal with some enemy aircraft. We carried on with the mission and upon return we were followed by 4 EIIIs. Hill did not give the signal to engage and we stayed on course slowly loosing them. Half way back to base two of the EIIIs, separated from each other by a good distance, were still following. I turned to engage the first one and hit him as he passed head on. He turned and headed for home.
I followed for awhile but not gaining I sent a few rounds in his direction and turned for home. The last EIII continued to follow and upon our arrival at base the EIII turned away.
Hill and I landed successfully with a good mission in hand. "A" flight downed an EIII during the mission.

Maeran, could you please explain, why your pilot has growing hours numbers in both
"Hotspot" and "Medium", when you haven't changed your base (Abeele, Flanders North, "Medium")?

Maeran's data. It does look as if what Olham says is right .....The hotspot AND medium hours are rising. Maeran can capture the correct result.

For the regional valuation (hotspot, medium or quiet) it only matters,
where the pilot is based - not where his sorties went.
May not be fair, but it is otherwise impossible for us to valuate.

Human error. Should be 6.85 hours hot and 15.57 hours medium. Sorry.

Maeran, no problem - please fill in the survey again; the points and endurance must get re-valuated.
Thanks!
