And so it ends for Sgt Arthur Much. Battling strong winds in the rather under-powered and flimsy Moraine Parasol, he became extremely disoriented in cloud and plowed straight into another Parasol. One big bang (which literally made me jump out of my seat!), and one fiery spiral to earth....

Not sure yet, but my B pilot may have to be French. As Banjoman so delightfully described, the Nupes are wonderful to fly wink

St. Pol-sur-Mer

Just got back from five days of glorious leave. One of the benefits of being stationed in St. Pol is we are so close to jolly old England that we can pop over when we have a spot of leave. I spent three lovely days with my family just eating, sleeping, and reading. It is so peaceful at home that I can forget this bloody war altogether. I did learn something interesting while I was home, I learned that my cousin Tom is now a flying sergeant with the 24th somewhere south of me. Aunt Edith said that he is flying DH.2s and that I should contact him. I don't think my aunt realizes just how big France is or how the military works. I did tell her that I would be sending him a letter. I wonder if good ole Tom went into flying because of me? I haven't seen that rascal in almost two years.

Ronald, Roderic, and I flew this morning's line patrol and of course Ronald claimed the Aviatik that I was softening up, so it seems nothing has changed while I was gone. I do enjoy a good leave for resting and recuperating, but I sure am glad to be back with the chaps.

Sgt. Frank Furter (yes, I'm up to "f" now) is not sure what to make of his observer, lt. Rowley. When the Fokkers caught up, Rowley fixed his aim on one - literally. He would not change, even as Furter was nearly colliding with another Fokker who was on a flightmate's tail. Then he finally did, but we also caught some lead, in the fuel tank, and in Rowley. Furter glided down and landed nicely outside of Arras, somehow sensing that Rowley was only 71% of his normal self, but at the debriefing later, he was informed that Rowley was in fact mortally wounded. Well, imagine his surprise when Rowley was in his seat, ready to go the next morning. Note to self: got to get me some of those drugs......

Thanks for the news, Fullofit! And thank you for all your reports, everybody. I've enjoyed reading them. It's just as fun as the DID flying itself! I've learned to like these DID campaigns so much that I don't even fly my other pilots much anymore. They just don't feel the same. smile

The Diary of August Ege.

6.XI.1915 Metz-Frescaty.


I have now become fully accustomed to the life of a military aviator here at Frescaty. Compared to Kraftwagen-Park 5, we have a smaller but very tightly knit community here. There are six pilots and six observers and about a company's worth of ground personnel making sure that all our flying operations go as smoothly as possible.

I have befriended my observer, Oberleutnant Andreas Balthazar. He's a Prussian, but quite unlike you'd think those people are, if you were to believe all the gossip and popular stories about them. Balthazar is a very friendly chap and we get along splendidly. He seems to be greatly amused by my Schwbisch accent; if he thinks we Stuttgarters speak in a funny way, he should travel to the small country villages of Wrttemberg to listen how people pronounce German there! The Fliegertruppen bring together men from all over the Reich, so it's easier to meet people from different regions than in most other branches of service.

We have been flying a lot of reconnaissance missions to the Verdun Salient recently. The French have big forts there and our commanders seems to be quite interested in the layout of their defenses. One could almost suspect that something big is planned to take place here soon, but then it's always hard to say what exactly the great warlords are thinking. We just do as we're told and learn the details later, provided that there is anything to learn!

Hasse, I'm with you, I don't fly any other campaigns other than my three DID pilots. Just like you, when I try it I just don't seem to care about them.

Sgt. Bastien Salmet, N-26, St-Pol-sur-Mer. March 5th 1916.

Bastien liked his Nieuport 12. It climbed well. He thought to himself that the Nieuport 10 scouts must climb even quicker, with only a single person. He had is observer, Lt. Raymond Blanchon, along for the ride. Three times they'd been up, simply touring the fields behind the lines, getting to know the surroundings. They were the only 2-seater crew, currently. The rest of the squadron were scouts. Bastien wondered how he could find a way into scouts. Could he find a way to be promoted, he thought to himself? Or would he have to transfer eventually. Time would tell. First order of business was to stay alive!

We lost Wolfgang the other day and I feel like I'm responsible. Poor Wolfgang had been flying the old Aviatik B.I and I was doing my best to keep him out of any action. I sent him up north where we hadn't encountered any Nieuports and he never returned, it was as if he just disappeared. I contacted all of the ballonzugs in that area and no one had seen anything. I feel that I failed as his commander and friend. Manfred took me to task when he could see how distraught I was at the loss of Wolfgang. He reminded me that I'm the commander first and foremost, everything else is to be subordinated to that duty. Finally, he told me that if I couldn't learn to separate my feelings from my professional duty then I would surely go mad and not be useful for anything and not only cost me my life but probably others as well. It was bitter medicine to take, but I know he speaks the truth and I thanked him for being bold enough to do so.

We received three new pilots yesterday and just as Hauptmann von Schoenebeck had done with me I reminded them that I didn't care a pfennig about who they were or what they had done before the war, I only cared could they fly and fight. Finally, I informed them that in FFA 32, we are comrades in the air and comrades on the ground and they should strive to remember that always. I'm amazed at the zealousness of these new pilots, they are so full of pisse und essig. I can only imagine that I was once as they are, though it seems a lifetime ago.

Well since I have no other pilots, and as the other 2 are waiting thier turn, I thought I'd fill in the time between with another one. Introducing "Stout Binger".








So far its been relativly easy. Two Huns forced down already.

Received another telephone call from Major Friedel today informing me that I am the new permanent commander of FFA 32. He stated that since I am doing a fine job it didn't make any sense to upset the routine of the unit. He also informed me that naturally I will be promoted to Hauptmann to fit my new responsibilities. I have grown accustomed to the duties of a commander so I was pleased with his news. Manfred was very pleased with the news and announced that a binge would be in order for this evening.

Part of my duties as commander has been to try an instill an aggressive spirit in the men and today my efforts were rewarded. I had ordered the Jasta to perform a recon up near Arras and I was leading Schwarm Zwei and Manfred was leading Schwarm Eins. Manfred was almost a kilometer ahead of us when I spotted a single Nieuport dive out of the clouds above and attack them. The Nieuport dove through the formation and continued down and then turned for home which told me that he had been damaged and was disengaging. The Jasta continued on and upon arriving at the specified location both schwarms began to orbit the location while taking photographs. It wasn't long until two Nieuports arrived and turned to engage Schwarm Zwei. I turned into their attack and August began to engage one of the Nieuports. After a few bursts, August must have hit the fuel tank because the Nieuport suddenly burst into flames and slowly rolled over and spun to Earth. I am always horrified and sickened by a flamer, I don't think I will ever get used to seeing that. I now turned my attention to the rest of the schwarm and saw the second Nieuport diving away to disengage. When we landed everyone was thrilled with of our victories over the hated Nieuports. I used this as another opportunity to teach my men that although we are flying cumbersome two seaters, we aren't defenseless and we can fight back. On a side note, our victory was unconfirmed but it doesn't matter because August and I know that we scored that victory. All in all, it was a good day.

Way to go Ledehosen - should try the earlier period and have pilot in each.
Banjoman, congrats on promotion.

Unfortunately Alfred Pennyworth has bought the farm. Wounded by the blasted CI gunner, while on fire. Died in hospital.
His place will be taken by Sergeant Bruce Wayne.

St. Pol-sur-Mer

Today was a shambles of a sortie. Roderic and I were ordered to escort two Quirks down to the line west of Lille for a bit of photography. Everything went according to plan until we arrived at the front and the Quirks began taking their photographs. I really dislike escorting Quirks because they are dreadfully slow which makes it incredibly difficult for us to maintain our position. Because of their slowness, we have to weave back and forth and sometimes climb and dive just to fly slow enough to stay with them. It was during one of those maneuvers that two Huns dropped down out of the clouds onto the Quirks. I spotted them, but we were out of position and before we could get there they had sent one of the Quirks spiraling down. I engaged the Hun the who had just shot down the Quirk. He was still watching his victim and didn't see me pull up below and behind him. One short burst into his engine and he immediately burst into flames and began his own death spiral. I lost sight of Roderic but upon landing he reported that he was able to save the second Quirk and down the second Hun and thereby saving something from the mess.

Bahhhhh....holy crap, my last pilot out for 9 days.


Nice deep recce with tons of flying time. We get over the Railhead and I'm counting trucks. All of a sudden little holes are appearing all over the place....yikes 2 Fokkers at about 30yrds. My gunlayer just froze and peed his pants. No time for thinking its just split and run. We make over the lines but I've strained the bus too much and now the sod is gaining on us. Sopt a sausage section and land next to it and its lovely MG's.

Yeahhh, I'm saved. Give him what for lads!! Err....oh oh.





How he missed us God only knows.

When I landed today I was greeted by Maj. Friedel, a number of lorries, and two new pilots. Maj. Friedel introduced me to Leutnant von Althaus and Vizefeldwebel Gustav Leffers and then asked if we could speak in my office. After pulling off my flying clothes, he informed me that the lorries held four of the new Fokker monoplanes. He then went on to tell me that the two new pilots are to be added to our roster and each one assigned a Fokker. Naturally, I protested that I didn't know these men and there were men already in FFA 32 that were more deserving. He waved off my comments like he was trying to shoo and fly and carried on as if I had not said anything. I was then informed that these two men had been training exclusively on the Fokker and to not worry they will fit right in to your unit. What could I do, I saluted and said "Yes, sir!" After he left, I called both men into my office to learn more about each one of them. I let them know that this was highly irregular and that I expected them to pull their weight and that they wouldn't be receiving any special treatment. Actually, both men were very embarrassed about the whole situation and made sure I understood that it was entirely Maj. Friedel's idea. Finally, I told them that we are first and foremost, comrades in the air and comrades on the ground, that I expected them to do their duty and obey my orders. Later that afternoon, I took one of the Fokkers up to get the feel of her. Sadly, she was nothing like the Nieuport, heavy on the controls with a tendency to drop a wing if you aren't paying attention. We shall see how she performs in combat.

Sergent Bastien Salmet, N 26, St-Pol-Sur_Mer. March 10th 1916.

A taste of action at last! Sgt. Salmet was awoken from his daydream, while circling the airfield of Droglandt, their assigned patrol area, by a quick rattle of his observer's guns. He immediately put the machine into a left turn, trying to get a sight of their assailant. There it was, an Eindecker, lurking. Salmet kept turning toward it and soon realized that it seemed a little reticent to engage. What was it doing here anyhow, thought Salmet, at the same time deciding to try to get closer to it and give his observer a chance to loose off some more rounds, which he did. No return fire. In fact, the Eindecker turned east. Salmet gave chase, caught up with it over the town of Poperinge and his observer let it have a few more rounds before they lost it in cloud.

Salmet decided to put down at Abeele and call it a day. First action of the war for him, and he was worn out and exhilarated, all at the same time!

n.b. thanks to Banjoman for encouraging a more offensive attitude with 2-seaters! The Eindecker might even have gone down, as the post mission report congratulated us on bringing down some E/A, and I was the only plane in the air from our squadron at the time. I didn't see it go down though, so I didn't claim it. We did score eight hits on it, according to the debrief screen.

HarryH, good report. The AI in WOFF does seem to get confused if you act aggressive and that will give you a brief window of opportunity.

Ofzr Achim Viedler, Bosta 6, Ghistelles. November 10 1915

The Kommandant welcomed Viedler into his office and held out a silver goblet, cushioned in its presentation case.

"Congratulations Herr Viedler. Not a bad start to your career with Bosta 6! Your claim from yesterday was confirmed! One less BE2 in the sky is a good thing, for sure. Keep up the good work!"

Achim could barely disguise the smile as he walked into his tent and showed the trophy to his beobachter.

"This is as much yours as it is mine, Georg" he beamed. "Let's make it the first of many victories to come!"


.... the Aviatik C1 is a sturdy craft, and with the gunner up front, it's great for chasing and shooting at hapless foes!
