Shhhh!!!! Careful, Robert - the walls have ears!
And in our case, we would even alarm both the British as well as the German intelligence!
(Nice pic of our meeting!)

It's interesting that I don't think I've spotted any Strutters so far in my DID career. I've seen all the other enemy crates - even the Sopwith Tripes that shouldn't be there yet - but no Strutters. Of course it's possible that some of the aircraft that I've seen but haven't recognized because of long distance have in fact been Strutters.

Perhaps my bombing attacks against the RNAS bases have been to successful? biggrin

Well, Corsaire said they had no planes left for RNAS-4, Hasse! Was that your work?

RNAS 4
Flight Lt. Edward Eastwood.
We finally have enough pilots to put some machines into the war. B Flight, 3 machines to bomb front lines south of Diksmuide. 5 Nieuport escorts from RNAS 1 as escorts. Very good flight with no contact. A and B flights all return safely. CO says some ground units were damaged. "Congratulations." I was expecting an afternoon patrol but the CO says we can stand down but be ready to go in the morning.


Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.

August 15, 1916
Flight Sub-Lt. Dudley Doorite
RNAS-4, Coudekerque



Yesterday Flight Lieutenant Parker bid me stay behind and help the mechanics work on my crate as well as other repairs. He felt it would do me good to see how much work went into keeping a Strutter airworthy. It's like he somehow blamed me for getting shot up. It's not like I asked the Eindeckers to do so.

I think he's just bitter that his claim was rejected, while mine was not. That means I have two kills to his one. I'm not the leader though: That honor goes to a newcomer, Flight Lieutenant Nick Arthur, who joined yesterday with 5 kills to his name. A bonafide ace.

Today Parker announced that the combined British and French armies were preparing to attack Guillemonte, some little village between Albert and Bapaume, in an effort to break the stalemate north of the Somme. We would be heading a little further southeast, to Athies, to hopefully destroy some trains and prevent reinforcements. Parker led one flight consisting of him, Whiting and I, while Lt. Arthur led the second flight of three more.

It never ceases to puzzle and amaze me that Wing Command sends us so far south when there must be half a dozen squadrons closer including several more dedicated bomber types. Still, it was a cool day, brilliant with puffy cumulus clouds at 5-7,000 feet, and I could think of far worse ways to spend my morning.

As we winged south-south east I kept looking back over my shoulder, back past my observer, and watched first the city of Dunkirk, then the entire North Coast fade to an idea, a suggestion on the northern horizon, wondering if I'd ever see it again.

I'll spoil the suspense. I needn't have worried.

Indeed, my only problem seemed to be growing issues keeping up with Parker and Whiting. Parker led us south to Lens, then on to Athies, while I steadily lost ground. Enemy Archie may have fired on us: I definitely heard the eternal artillery battle along the Somme, but at 10,000 feet nothing hit. No Eindeckers either. If they noticed us, they couldn't catch us.

We reached Athies 2 or 3 minutes apart, then I spun to pursue my wingmates home. Farther...farther... eventually, not too far from home but not that close either, I lost them entirely.

Well then. I knew the course: 330 degrees, Parker hadn't wavered since his bombing run. I also knew he and Whiting would stay at 10,000 feet until the final descent. I determined to pay them back by racing them home and broke into a dive, levelling out at 5,000 feet.

Not good enough. A huge cloud chose to block my path. I plowed through it, and at 4,000 feet the haze finally broke and I saw Dunkirk clear.

Nonetheless, it took a few minutes of spiraling to find out where Coudekerque hid. I zeroed in and came in for a landing.

Did I beat Parker and Whiting home? As I turned off my engine I heard the stuttering drone of idling engines. Looking up I saw two specks slowly spiraling the field, trying to get down.

Serves them right for leaving me behind.

The continuing career of Albert "Mushroom" Ward:




16 Aug 1916 @ 06h23 Railyard attack at Roulers Junction

I lead the flight with Parsons, Huskisson, and Chadwick accompanying.
We had cumulous cover ranging from 2000 to 5500 feet. The flight was uneventful and we arrived over the target and bombed it successfully returning home un-molested.
We all landed safely and headed directly to the mess for breakfast and a hot coffee.

YouTube Video:


16 Aug 1916 @ 14h48 Recon of Troop and Vehicle movement south of Nieuport

Escort of 6 DH.2s from RFC-29 out of Abeele

I lead the flight with Shook, Hervey, and Huskisson accompanying. We had ranging cumulous clouds from 4000 to 7500 feet. We arrived over the recon area and began our circuit but shortly thereafter I spotted what looked like three enemy craft approaching. I did an about face and took the flight west away from the approaching enemy craft and wondering where our escort was. Shortly after I spotted the DH.2s approaching from about 1000 feet above. I did an about face and swung in behind them to continue our recon.sure that the escort would handle the three enemy craft. Boy was I surprised when they sailed on past them. I noticed one EIII trying to swing onto my tail from above and so I swung into him but not fast enough to avoid a burst into my upper port wing. I continued to turn inside him and eventually came onto his tail sending a burst into him and seeing smoke coming from him. I followed a bit until I was sure he was going down and then I swung around to regather the flight. We continued to circle on the recon until one more enemy craft showed up but when I swung into his direction he headed due east and so I terminated the chased and again reformed the flight to continue our recon. Upon completion we headed for home with one suspected enemy craft some distance behind us which we outran. The DH.2s never did return to escort us home. We landed safely. I put in a claim and Shook confirmed it for me as he saw it hit the ground. We all went to the mess for a couple of pre-dinner drinks and to wonder how lucky we were that all three enemy scouts didnt attack us at once and where the hell the escort got to.

WHAT!? You broke one of the most sacred of the DID rules and flew when you were not allowed to? Prepare for the beatings.

Ugg, be careful what you wish for. When I have flown it, it was deadlier than the Huns! I would much rather stay in the N11 until the 17 shows up!

The Nieuport 16 is actually worse than the N.11. It was a failed attempt to improve the older version. On the other hand, the N.17 is wonderful and very much better than the N.16.
