I've been busy as heck guys and with not a lot of time to fly. I finally received my transfer from the FE2b and RFC 18 to the DH2 with RFC 32. I flew just one escort mission, my two wingmates collided with each other and left me alone, I got jumped by a bunch of Einies, and led two of them back down low over our lines and to an observation balloon outpost. The balloon gunners shot one down and I chased the other one back to Hunland before the front line forces filled me full of holes and I turned toward home.

I've been reading reports and applaud all of the medals and successes and I'm truly impressed at how many "A" flyers that are still left out there. Keep it up men!

Flight Lt Alex Ackworth - RNAS 4 - Coudekerque - 24 July 1916 (Mission 24)

Today a cold front has reached the north of France. The sky is grey, low and it's raining. It clears up a little in the afternoon, still with showers, and I take off with Flight Cdr Whealdon for a bombing of ground units east of Ypres. My plane is still at Bailleul and they gave me one from the reserve.

We meet our escort of 2 DH2s on the way, and as usual they fall behind. Because of the weather we fly at only 6000 ft looking for the holes in the cloud cover. We get to our objective, drop our bombs and turn around. No german plane in sight !

We fly over Ypres on the way back when my engine starts to loose power and make strange noises... Oh no, not again ! Seems like there is a price to pay for using silver bullets !

I cut down on the power and we idle gently down to Abeele airfield. While John and I have a warm tea and fruit cake (it is around 5 o'clock) the ground crew comes in with the news : the engine is fubar and the repair will take 4 days. Another return to Coudekerque by road ... By tomorrow, I hope someone will have flown my plane back from Bailleul !

The only good news is that I made the 25.67 hours. Another evening of drinks on me !

We will continue to try not to die. It has worked for me so far.

Well, the finger of fate has hit me this time. 2nd mission in my DH2 and Archie takes me out. Damned frustrating. I think thats as close as I have come to tossing a joystick across the room. I need a break.
I will be back in the DID in a week or two. In the mean time will be reading your reports and cheering you on from the side lines. Time to spend more time in the saddle anyway. Keep your eyes sharp lads and watch for them coming out of the sun!

Congratulations on 25 hours Corsaire. Good flying, great awareness. Keep it up, only half way to 50.

Put Your Butt in a Sopwith Strutter...!... and you might live longer.

...and you have a rear gunner, plus a very good main gun with excellent cockpit visibility. Guages readable to an American, and plenty of them well organized. I can eat EII's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in one.

I'm flying an EIII in Alsace.

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:





22 Jul 1916 @ 15h32 Recon enemy Vehicle and troop movement on the lines near Armentieres. We had two Nieuport 11 Bebe for excort from RNAS-1 out of Furnes.

Booker lead the flight with Parsons, Hervey, Myself, Huskisson and Chadwick accompanying. Wind was 8 kn SSW with dense cululous between 3000 and 4000.
Our trip to the target area was uneventful but upon our first circle of the target area we encountered two EIIIs curious about our activities. They passed overhead at about 1000 and left. Upon our third circle three more EIIIs arrived to investigate us but they also circled and left. On our return home about 5 miles on our side of the lines we again encountered two EIIIs well above us at 12 Oclock passing in the opposite direction heading for the lines. They also left us alone. The recon was successful and we returned to base unmolested. Upon arrival at base the C.O. called me into his office to inform me I was being presented with the DSO. The boys will undoubtedly be celebrating with me tonight once they hear about it. There will be some sore heads in the morning.

Yep, that is how it is done in a Strutter.

Tnx mate! I really hope I can make it to 25 hours. I also am hoping for some bad weather. It's tough to get in two missions a day to keep up with the campaign. The bad weather would give me a nice break! Racking up some leave time would also help some.

Best Regards;

Umm.. just play DiD to correspond to the real datein our month, subtract all the years.

It doesn't matter if you fly all missions in one day that lines up 2014 and 1916.
They must be flown on the same date minus the years.
No catchng up on days allowed. True Month Date Only....as far as I understand it.

Robert, your graphics in the vid are looking superb, and the funny glitches with AnKor's mod
seem to be gone now? Gee, the new water surface looks so inviting for a campaign there by the sea!
Do you climb to altitude, or use any time warp? I forgot how that "next waypoint" thing goes.

Robert, I see LABELS in your video - remember: flying as a "B" pilot, you should only use
LABELS as "Dots" (LABELS with identification are only allowed for the "C" pilots).

This is why I made the choice of flying only one mission a day, and I make a draw with a dice to decide if I fly the morning or afternoon mission. I also rest on weekends. yep
With a little luck you can be wounded for 14 days and have a break with the nurses ! wink

Olham, I still have the funny glitches but so far not as bad as before. you will see them briefly when I landed and was looking back at incoming craft.

Yes the water surface looks superb, that is why I kept my sight on it while flying over the coast. I also have noticed that the water surface gets rougher as the wind increases.

I don't climb to altitude but stay with my flight because I am not leading it. Once we engage and the formation breaks up I feel I am on my own to do what I want. Being in the formation does offer some hope for support. An interesting note here is that you will notice that three times enemy aircraft passed over us and none attacked. This has happened frequently for me. On two occasions I could have broken off and chased them down but that was not the objective in my mission.

I will fix the label issue. I re-read your DiD procedures after you brought this up and understand now. I was incorrectly assuming the concern was only with enemy aircraft. I mostly used it to identify my flight members. I think I will change the squadron paint schemes to add a wing identification to help with the visuals. Is that ok?

Having noticed this also a few times, I briefly turned on the activity labels and it seems that once they are set to "Going home" they just don't bother anymore. You are only attacked by planes who are either "in transit" or "on patrol" from what I understand.
