Morning Patrol got into it with the Huns. I dont know what kind of e/a but it was flown well. The flight 0f 2 acted like a flight of six. Our 3 a/c section all had damage and someone claimed 1 Hun destroyed. Well, I didn't see it. My Vicker's jammed after 7 rds so I bailed and had to put down at a friendly.

Our good friends the Rolands, probably the only plane that gives the Pup any trouble.

Oh...that Roland! The one that attacks anything and everybody no matter what the odds? The one with the pilot set to "always attack"? The one that thinks he is a scout, not a bomber? That one?
Never heard of him.

Sighted 3 Hun Scouts, they were higher than us, doing a slow circle. Only one stayed to play. The others took off for home. My 4 a/c two of which were Spad VII's were hard put to nail him. Our flight leader got lucky and smoke filled the morning sky.

Carrick58, did I read that correctly, SPAD VIIs? I wasn't aware that they were available yet.

The section was sent to get a balloon. We popped the gas bag only to have 1 of our 3 a/c to crash ( gun fire explosion ? )
We pulled into a corkscrew going up only to get into it with 3 Halb Scouts after awhile 2 went home. We played tag until he grew tired and went home. Frustrating !

Carrick58, I just noticed that Dudley isn't in the status report. Please enter his information so I can keep track of him.

Ive been posted to 60 Sgn to get a little Rotary Engine Time. Nice Chaps they put me on Patrol strait away and almost got shot down. Our 3 a/c mixed it up with a Halb and I took over 12 hits in my Morane. The gunner fired off 97 rds of Lewis but no hits, but it might have scared him off.

Our 2 a/c were doing a Railyard strike and got bounced by 3 of the New Hun machines. My wingmate Phil got the Chop never had a chance. My kite got shot up over 15 hits including the motor made a "Ell " of a racket but was able to make it down on our side of the lines.

Carrick, I urge Dudley to seek help of a specialist. It looks like he has a death wish to fly these crates. Good luck! wounded

Bruce Wayne spent the entire week looking through the window at the waves of rain. The gloomy interior reminded him of a cave. He only flew one mission.

Bernard Sorelle on the other hand was taking advantage of favorable weather and was getting to know the rear end of the new Albatros very well.

Went on an Arty Spot Mission. Spent most of the flight hiding in the clouds and flying away from Hun Scout Patrols, but did managed to get the job done no losses.
