Good read with my coffee, Lou - those are the frays when a pilot could fall;
it would all end from one moment to the next; but we don't think about ANYthing in the future -
even if that future is only minutes ahead - we only act and react, here and now.
I had such fights and I know how you felt.
Only now, back home and in a hospital bed, the thinking may set in.
Perhaps someone can provide you with some good whisky, or at least an easy-reading book.

Thanks Olham. Books the Captain has a plenty, as to the whiskey he'll have to make do with what's available in camp unless some kind soul has a good bottle secured away that their willing to share. Perhaps he'll have to make use of transportation from the motor pool and tootle up north to the RNAS 5 digs to pay a call on 'Mushroom' Ward, one of his old acquaintances from the flying school. Now that man has a nose for good liquor.

Well, I read from McCudden, that the RFC has women drivers - maybe you can charm one to drive you north in a free Crossley.

Women drivers may be dangerous - see my signature. biggrin

All things considered, Captain Burroughs was lucky. It often happens in WOFF that those wounds kill you.

hee hee, women drivers in the RFC, reminds me of the following:

Flashheart's driver comes to pick him up

As fortunate as he's been up to this point I don't think Captain Burroughs' luck extends that far. WOFF!

There will be a bottle of the best here for you when you are able to travel. We shall drink to your future health and deeds.
Rest well my friend...you deserve it. Oh, and don't let those pretty nurses tire you out!

Oh, I fogot to mention to you Artemus, that I have been advised by Corsaire (a friend of a pilot in RNAS-4), that the young lady in the farm house SE of Coudekerque is spoken for by said pilot! You being quite a ladies man might overstep the boundaries of propriety if you were not advised of this biggrin

Robert, Thanks, its nice to be given a gift every now and then. It does not happen in WOFF to often. BTW, thanks for keeping an eye out for Anna!

Leaderhosen, Hope your move goes well, I am sure your kite will be ready when you are.

Olham, Not much of a drinker, changes my personality for the worse but how about a bottle of Champagne, vintage 1903, I understand it is very hard to get?

Lou, May your hospital stay be a good one and your wounds heal fast. You are alive Sir, and that's what counts! Hell of a fight.

Ah, that's where I saw it!

Well women CAN be dangerous...
...but they usually drive rather carefully, and with more attention to others, than men often do.

Yes, statistics prove that women are actually safer drivers than men. They cause less accidents.

Men also die younger than women. The price we have to pay for our dangerous lifestyles! smile

This is the big question : is it better to have a long boring life, or a short interesting one ? (of course a long interesting one is also obviously a good choice !)

I once found this:

"There are men who don't smoke, don't drink any alcohol, don't party, don't do anything dangerous, and are not interested in women. For punishment, they must live longer. " smile2

Easy to achieve, they (women) drive less then men,

Sure men die younger! Did you ever try to regulate your wifes driving, or even judging it? reading

yes, my friend, this is the time when your lifespan shortens, seriously!

Lt.Casey, Jim_Attrill reported, that you entered you were training on the Bristol F2b -
that craft doesn't yet exist in 1916. Did you mean the FE.2b ?

TO ALL PILOTS
Please do not make any entries yet in the survey, when your flight time is 0.0 hours.
That causes problems with the survey, and you wouldn't appear in the chart anyway,
unless you have flown at least 20 minutes.

Sure, but I guess the bE2 is not in the list.

Maybe, we should enlist first in the campaign sheet, when training is over, and you have progressed to your main unit?

Life in MFFA 2 has continued pretty much as usual, with one exception - I have a confirmed kill now! Well, actually my observer shot the EA down, but I got the credit for it in the form of an Honor Goblet.

We were returning from a bombing attack against Koksijde airfield (our regular target - we visit it almost every day) when I spotted a lone aircraft approaching my flight of three Aviatiks. As it got closer, I could see that it was a Nieuport 11 with British colours. Because it was alone against the three of us, I wasn't too worried. Two or three enemy fighters pose a much bigger threat to Aviatiks, but one can still be handled.

The Nupe approached the Aviatik on my right wing and then opened fire while still some distance away from the target. My observer and the observer of the Aviatik under attack responded, and soon there was a fierce firefight taking place in the air. The other Aviatik got hit a few times, but then my observer managed to fire a couple of bursts into the Nupe, which promptly turned over and spun down completely out of control. The Nupe crashed on a field a couple of kilometers SW of Ostende.

I wasn't sure who would be credited for the kill, but after the mission was over I got the claim form, so it was me. A nice little revenge against the Entente fighters! smile

Otherwise we've continued to suffer casualties, but there have been no complete wipeouts in a while, for which I'm grateful.

MFFA 2's principal role is listed as reconnaissance, but I'd say at least 2/3 of all the missions that I've flown have been bombing attacks, quite of few of them against Koksijde airfield. Must be something very important about that place!

Hasse: Congrats on doing so well with the Aviatik! I tried a few QCs with her and ... ugh. I liked her maneuverability, but that observer in my way is a killer.
