I'm scouring for WW1 ground-to-air operations
"We had our contact patrol technique perfected and we went right down to 3000ft to see what was happening. We had a klaxon horn on the undercarriage of the Morane - a great big 12 volt klaxon - and I had a button which I used to press out a letter to tell the infantry that we wanted to know where they were. When they heard us hawking at them from above, they had little red Bengal flares, they carried them in their pockets, they would put a match to their flares. All along the line, wherever there was a chap, there would be a flare and Bob's your uncle! [very dodgy while under fire to light a flare on a battlefield] ...we went down looking for flares and we only got two flares on the whole front."
Second Lieutenant Cecil Lewis, 3 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps
This is him I think http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Lewis
Disastrous day, 1st July 1916.
I really hope we can do some of these forward air observer operations in KotS and that this sort of stuff will not have to be imagined amid the drifting battlefield smoke we were promised*
We have no imagination KotS developers, please give us the lot
* no I know, it's the usual lure
