Banjoman, I guess the French get them earlier. I suppose they're the original beta testers.

Well, that would make sense, just don't rub it in too much.

Kuroken, Alvins letters home continue to be very entertaining. Great stuff.

lederhosen, love the added documents and photos and such to your reports - and Captain Mannequin of course.

carrick58, I hope Lt. There is still, well, there. I notice his reports have been absent as of late.

Banjoman, wonderful journal entries and screenshots as well. Also, congratulations on making it to Squadron Commander, but with 26 victories while flying a Morane its no wonder.

loftyc, hard luck on the disappearance of Sgt. Jameson. I feel your pain as Ive had the same thing happen to me numerous times in the past. Roberts back-up program really is the answer to this, assuming your computer doesnt burn up completely of course.

Fullofit, glad to see you're still around. And the N10 in a week you say? Lucky dog.


Adjutant Tremblay continues to do his bit for France and has in fact reached ace status. He was given a weeks leave upon being presented lMdaille militaire and has returned just recently from Amiens where he most certainly did not behave as a gentleman. But then, seeing as he was still le sergent at the time, his behavior was trs propo. His bump to the officers' ranks came when he returned to camp and luckily ahead of the reports that came in from the local authorities in Amiens. Had those arrived first it is doubtful the young pilote would have received the promotion. C'est la guerre!



Allard's last five or so sorties have all been at sunrise and they have been magnifique!



While real life continues to be very busy and has denied me the time I would like to spend posting in the forums rest assured I am still about, as are my DID pilots. Keep fighting the good fight Gents.

It's the absence of CatKnight that has me a little worried. Has anybody heard anything from him? By the way, nice report Lou.

BurnHard lived up to his name today when he tangled with a Morane down low and didn't realize he was above enemy trenches. It was a great Dog Fight until the troops hammered him.








RIP




Think I'll go for a current date French pilot, or an American flying for the French as my next pilot.

MudWasp;

You really know how to throw caution to the wind! I'm glad you are more cautious with your other DiD pilot. He has an amazing career and I would hate to see him go east.

Here is my new pilot;


He set a Course for Paris and then turned towards the frontlines refueling at Toul. Then he followed the lines down to their southern end and landed at Fontaine. Took a nice landmark photo to send home to uncle Pierre.

Kuroken you continue to write great reports. I feel I am really getting to know Alvin.

MudWasp, hope he stays alive for some time!

Journal Entry: August 28, 1915
St. Pol-sur-Mer

We had quite the brew-up the other day in the officer's mess. It seems that Ackerman felt the need to insinuate that Vix wasn't quite as brave as he should be and wasn't attacking the Huns with the proper fighting spirit. Vix took offense and provided a chance for Ackerman to prove him wrong in the afternoon sortie. No one was surprised with what occurred during that sortie because as everyone knows Ackerman is not a brave man. As a matter of fact, Ackerman is a pompous ass and if I were in the old man's shoes I would get rid of him. I have to hand it to Vix, I believe he handled the situation admirably and hopefully we won't hear too much more out of that windbag. Speaking of Vix, he has developed quite the taste for combat, I must congratulate him on his outstanding performance of late.

I feel like Don Quixote tilting at the proverbial windmills because once more Wing has seen fit to reject the claims of my three fledglings. I sometimes wonder if the bean-counters at Wing are just flipping coins to see whether or not the claim is confirmed or not. Luckily, my fledglings do not seem to be dismayed by the antics of the pencil pushers at Wing. I think I'm more bothered by it than they are, which of course is a good thing.

Short version;
Clarke's rear gunner Geoffrey showed off his skills on Sunday the 30th on two deep penetrations into enemy turf which resulted in 7 confirmed Aviatiks downed. Aces Pegoud and Zarapoff assisted on both and shot down 8 between the two of them.

Pegoud collided with an an Aviatik on the second mission of the day and died.

WOFF advanced to the next day and the newpaper read;


Bitter sweet morning as Clarke was awarded the Medaille Militaire.

Yep, that thought just went through my head before I read your comment.

All: First, I want to apologize for not publishing scores in a good month. Life is...well, kinda hectic lately and it's not going to let up for a bit yet. I'm happy if I can get a half hour in shooting at planes let alone reporting.

Banjoman has kindly offered to help and will be administering the form and scoreboard. If you haven't reported in awhile but you're still in, please go ahead and update and we'll get a scoreboard published.

Thanks Banjoman!
