The weather improved a little today on the Western Front and Combats in the Air were more frequent.
19 Squadron RFC and 1 Squadron RNAS got into a scrap near Tenbrielen with Jasta 36.
2nd Lieutenant Thomas Elder-Hearn was injured when his SPADVII (B3646) crashed in a shell hole after being shot down. Captain Patrick Huskisson suffered a similar fate but survived unscathed. 2nd Lieutenant Herbert John Stone was also shot down in his SPADVII (A6687) and crashed. He was seriously injured and later died of his wounds in hospital. 2nd Lieutenant EJ Hustings had the engine of his SPADVII (A262) shot up and made a poor landing. He was shaken up but otherwise unhurt.
1 Squadron RFC got away without loss though 2nd Lieutenant CE Ogden’s Nieuport was badly shot up.
Leutnants Hans Hoyer and Walter von Bülow made claims over SPADs in the area though its not clear who shot down who. Hoyer was himself killed shortly afterwards. It’s unclear if he was shot down by one of the SPADs from 19 Squadron or by Captain Phillip F Fullard from 1 Squadron RFC who claimed two Albatrosses shot down in this area at the time.
