Directly translated, it would be "heartfelt good wishes" (or "heartfelt wishes of luck").

Thanks Lt Casey. I must admit this is the longest continuous campaign I have had with a pilot. I usually don't last this long because of taking risky changes. I have cut back my aggression and this is certainly part of why I am still flying. I still do have some close calls though usually getting too close to the opponent and risking a mid-air collision.

The two remaining pilots in MFFA 2 were ordered to bomb a railyard at La Gorgue today. That sounded like yet another suicide mission, but at least they were promised Eindecker escorts from Sonderkommando Sachsenberg!

The mission went fine at first, until we were supposed to meet the Eindeckers. After spending many minutes looking for them, we finally gave up and headed towards the front - as usual, the Eindeckers failed us. When they bother to join us, they usually run away at the first sight of trouble. Well, this time they didn't bother to join us! Bloody cowards!

We tried to reach the target, but close to the front we encountered a couple of British DH.2s. Discretion is the better part of valour, so I aborted the mission and led my wingman back towards our field at Nieuwmunster. However, one of the DH.2s managed to overtake us and proceeded to attack my wingman. A furious firefight developed, with the Aviatik getting badly hit by the DH.2 and the British fighter taking many hits from the Parabellums of our observers. Finally the crazy Englishman had had enough and he turned away, trailing a thick cloud of smoke behind him. I hope he crashed!

My wingman was too badly hit and had to land before we reached Nieuwmunster. I made a successful landing and then discovered that both pilot and observer of the other Aviatik had been killed in the crash. We didn't get any credit for the encounter, so maybe the DH.2 survived.

MFFA 2 is now out of action until August 16, when replacement pilots and observers will arrive.

Vizeflugmeister Niemann and his observer are tempted to take a full load of bombs and go drop them on the idiots of SK Sachsenberg. It must be the most useless fighter formation in the whole German air force!



My badly shot wingman on the left and the DH.2 on the right, aborting his attack thanks to heavy fire from our observers.

Robert, Squadron Commander! Same pay, more responsibility. Great job Sir!

On the compass, no compass note. I have been wrong before but never unsure. Having flown 3 missions in the "soup" I have to admit I was wrong and Scout was right. No A pilot should have to rely on a compass. Where I am sure it would be easier using the shadow mod, it can be done. Not easy all the time but I have hit my home field all three times. Must admit it took me 30 min. of searching the last time.

Congratulations to all surviving pilots and I hope all your nurses are pretty and of a good disposition.

Hasse, the escorts usually fly to waypoint 2 and circle there, while we often climb
a long time at waypoint 1, they often fly home, when we arrive.
I checked that several times with my other pilots, with Labels and TAC on.
When you don't climb so long and proceed to waypoint 2, you may catch them.
And then their "activity Labels" change from "on transit" to "escorting ...".
Now the question is: can we continue the climbing at waypoint 2, and will they follow?
Didn't check that out yet.

I guess after 20 missions you will recognise your homefield by the surroundings, MFair!

Olham and Hasse;

That escort thing is a bummer! I haven't had any experiences like that on the British side. Hope you can get the climb continuing at waypoint 2! Good luck!

Congrats, Eastwood and Mardling - you will see the medals in the next chart!

*** *** ***


Offzstv. Bernhard Harms, Kasta 18, Pronville, 11. August 1916

We just returned from a 1-hour mission; we had to find any new British artillery emplacements between
Bapaume in the north, and Peronne in the south. We had done the job perhaps half, when a flight of
five or six enemy aircraft appeared, which we saw, because the Flak was firing after them like mad.
They were ca. 1500 - 2000 Meter below us, but they climbed and climbed, to get at us.
We could finish flying the whole route one way, but when we had to turn, the E/A had climbed at least
1000 Meter, and I could recognise they were Strutters.
Had we flown all they way back up north, they might have reached our altitude and cut off our way back,
so I decided to break off, and we rushed downwards to the northeast, with our 210 km/h dive.
But those Strutters did the same - and they could keep up with us or even close on us.

I was prepared to fight, but dived even steeper now. Klein clutched his Parabellum, determined to
shoot the first Strutter to hell. But then the Englishmen suddenly swung back and turned away from us.
Maybe we had lured them down too low by now, which must feel very uncomfortable over enemy terrain.

The Hauptmann wasn't happy with what we brought back, and we will have to make another sortie after
lunch - High Command is making pressure on us to deliver 100% of what they asked for.

That looks awfully familiar, Hasse. You weren't repeating the mission I got injured stopping on Sunday were you?

Flight report of Charles C Johnson
August 12, 1916 0602am dawn patrol

Today we shall fly a recon patrol over the frontline brining us directly to an enemy airfield at the frontline. Its the one I made pictures from on my sunday morning patrol. It is brand new.

The approch went silent and steady and I was able to keep in touch with the N16s, which is quiet remarkable in my `Bebe`to be honest. we climbed up 2800m, when the `sous Luietnant`decided to go into that steep dive again, and attack 2 EIII approaching the enemy field.

By the time I "leafed" down, the EIIIs were history, and we got separated from each other, so I climb back to some altitude, when watching 2 Aviatiks taking off of said airfield.

I swung around and dived on that second Aviatik from a high 4oclock position, knowing the observer will have a hard time to see me, or even open up fire on me,.......tack tack....tack tack the "Lewis" went off, pumping lead into the engine and pilots compartment. Black smoke puffs coming from the engine while I ready up for my second approach from a high 9oclock position of the two seater. Again I managed to hit the engine and compartment, and this time the kite goes nose down, and try to emercency land in nomansland, when I realized the sound of my engine. It didnt sound good, like I have lost 2 or more cylinders, but the rpm was stable.

So I decided to gain some height and fly west, direction Behonne, checking the map, it was the nearest friendly field also. I do sent prayers to god, bringing me home, or at least let me land on friendly teritory. To shorten this, I managed to get back home healty, land the crate, filed my claim. My mechanic told me that they will have to replace the engine and I will be grounded for one day. Might be up in the air by noon tomorrow.

The Escadrille americane starts speeding up things, we were able to down 4 e/ac by no loss on our side.




I think, I will have a beer or two in the mess......

Yep, it's a dangerous world out there! Congrats on the medals, guys! I think everybody who lives through a combat mission also deserves congratulations. IMO, it doesn't really matter if you don't get any kills, as long as you manage to stay alive. That's the most important - and also the hardest - part in the business.

Lou and Robert, your pilots are going to have hundreds of victories within a few months if you keep that up! Please try to be careful. It's a long war, you don't have to become the Great War equivalents to Erich Hartmann already in 1916. smile

Flight Lt. Edward Eastwood.

Capt. Drury, my gunner, and I were sitting in the mess playing cards today when we heard an aircraft approaching. We thought at 1st it might be one of our replacements coming in so we went out to have a look. Whats this? A DH2 was coming in. Must be having problems or lost. The pilot, a Capt. Artemus Burroughs, taxies his craft around and does not even switch off the engine. "Looking for a Lt. Eastwood" he yells as we approach. That would be me Sir," I yell back. He tosses a small box to me, says he is to drop this off at Coudekerque for me. He then gives me the once over and yells over his engine, "Don't know why I had to make a special trip, you don't look very important to me!" Then he guns his engine and off he goes. I open the box and find I have been given a medal! Wow! This was unexpected.

Thanks for all of your work Lou. It is most appreciated.

Well, it wasn't really much out of his way as Captain Burroughs was returning a jiggy old Airco to the St. Omer depot anyway. His shoulder has healed enough that he's been allowed to finish out the rest of his convalescence back in jolly old England so he is catching the next boat across the channel just as fast as possible before some brass hat mucks up the plan. There are rumors floating about that the Captain may be getting an invite to the Palace but that's likely just talk. All he really cares about is getting home to Bedford for a while.

I hear you Hasse! I'm already starting to become more cautious because I have so much invested in this pilot! Unfortunately once the attack begins and the adrenalin flows it is difficult at best to be cautious! I'm working on it!

My old wing mate Beanlands reported in for the Morning Parade. Only to suffer a Lt Wnd by the afternoon.

B flight of 6 macnines got into a Bar room Brawl over St Vasst. The flight ran into a 5 or 6 a/c bomber group Escorted by 4-5 Fokkers. As #4 a/c I followed the flight into the swirling mess of a/c. Climbing after the 2 Seat types I got 2 Green painted Fokkers on my tail. T did a 180 turn and got inside and lower firing as I went even my rear seater got off numerous 3 shot bursts as they passed by or went over us. Repeat the tactic over again and again. More twisting and turning Firing. Before we could finally break away, I had shot off 201 Rds of Vickers and my Rear Gunner 97 rds No kills , but we went home.

Remarks: I did see 1 E-III in a spin and saw a smoking a/c headed down. B Flight lost 3 Dest ( 1 a Flamer) 1 Lt damage with a wnd pilot. 1 Gunner KIA Claims: ? 1 e/a + damage among the scout types.
